The Wheeling Park District Preschool is guided by the philosophy of “learning through play”. Through activities in art, games, storytelling, cooking, movement and songs, children develop self-control, physical coordination and social skills. Children are exposed to letters, numbers, colors, shapes and readiness skills in an encouraging, nurturing setting.

The Wheeling Park District Preschool provides a secure and supportive environment for developing a love for school.

Preschool classes begin on September 7

All children registering for Preschool programs must meet the age requirement for the class. A non-refundable, non-transferable $25 registration fee per child is required at the time of registration. This fee is not applied toward the monthly tuition. Payments can be made in full or through our nine-month (August-April) auto-withdrawal plan.
