Welcome Parents

to Mannheim Early Childhood Center 

We have a Preschool for All Program, as well as an Early Childhood Special Education Program. Our curriculum is a play based curriculum, which means you will see the students interacting in their natural environment. Preschool helps children develop the social, emotional, and pre-academic skills they need to succeed in school and in life. 

Preschool for all is a high quality two and half hour program that brings together qualified staff, a proven curriculum and parent involvement to help prepare children for success in school. 

YES! Preschool for All helps children develop the skills they need to succeed in school and later in life. 

Screenings are provided to children whose parents have concerns about their development. Three, four and five year old children (who have not entered kindergarten) are eligible for a screening. Students qualify for the program based upon their age and screening results. 

Screenings are provided monthly to residents of District 83. Please call the Mannheim Early Childhood Center office at 847-455-3611. 

YES! Throughout the year, there are a variety of parent involvement opportunities such as volunteering in your child’s classroom, attending playgroups, field trips and parent education workshops. 

There are no fees for screening or for the Preschool for all Program. 

If you have more questions, please contact the Mannheim Early Childhood Center at 847-455-3611.
