Children, Camps & Enrichment – Preschool

Children's Connection

Our Preschool Enrichment Programs are designed to provide children with quality learning experiences through age appropriate activities that foster each child’s social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development. Activities are structured so children can interact with classmates on an individual basis and within a group. Enrichment programs are designed for your child to experience success each and every day, and to instill a love of learning that children will carry with them for years to come. By providing children with a safe, comfortable, and encouraging environment it is our mission to ensure happy learning practices for all children.

Children’s Connection

Waukegan Park District Children’s Connection Program is designed to provide your child with quality PLAY experiences that will foster their social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development. We believe that children learn to play and play to learn.  As your child plays, they will learn to solve problems, to get along with others and to develop the fine and gross motor skills needed to grow, learn and have a head start on their school years ahead.
