Christ the King School - Preschool

We understand how important it is to you for your child to start on the right path when beginning school. At CK, your child will enjoy one-on-one attention in a dynamic and stimulating atmosphere that makes learning fun

We have 3 newly remodeled preschool rooms. Enrollment is limited to 18 students per class with blended 3- and 4-year old students. Because of the small class sizes, our experienced preschool teachers and aides are able to develop strong bonds with the children, fostering enthusiastic learning and self-confidence as they begin their educational journey.

Educational Focus:

We have created our programs with your child’s spiritual, cognitive and creative development in mind while using Big Day Curriculum. We focus on the following areas:

  • Catholic Tradition: We offer a faith-based program, including morning prayers and Bible stories that celebrate the Catholic faith and tradition
  • Language: Our students enjoy storytelling, letter recognition, and practicing printing letters while using the Lucy Calkins writing program
  • Computer Skills: Students are introduced to state-of-the art technology, including iMacs, iPads and software that encourage early language, math, and hand-eye coordination
  • Art/Music: Focuses on fostering children’s natural sense of creativity through art and music
  • Purposeful Play: The structured portion of class is balanced with plenty of free play for children to explore the classroom, centers and socialize with their peers
  • Playground/Playlot: Preschoolers have their own private, enclosed play area that includes a playhouse, climbing area, and slide to experience healthy physical play during outdoor recess
  • Visitors: We love to invite members of our community and parents to read to or share their profession with our children. We’ve enjoyed visits from the Chicago Police and Fire Departments, musicians, and Hands-On-Art volunteers.
