Which Hinsdale Pre-school Should You Choose?
The school is one of the few parent co-ops in Illinois, although it is professionally managed. That means that a parent is in the classroom at all times. When it is your turn, you will need to be the snack mom or snack dad (healthy snacks only please). The required parental involvement fosters an environment where you and your family will be expeditiously assimilated into the Hinsdale area community. This is perfect for families who move from the city, out-of-state or even out-of-country.
In my opinion, another significant benefit is that the Hinsdale Community Pre-School is on the Robbins Park campus. This contains Robbins Park (the largest in-town park in Hinsdale), Madison Elementary School and the Community House. If your child begins the Mom & Me program at the age of two, and continues through the Hinsdale Community Preschool through age four, he or she will have 3 full years of experiencing what it is like to walk among the big kids (at neighboring Madison School). By the time your child reaches the kindergarten age, he or she will have so much experience walking to school that they will not be crying on the first day of kindergarten, you will!
