ABOUT GBN PRESCHOOL

We are a teaching preschool located within Glenbrook North High School. Our program gives Glenbrook North students the opportunity to observe and interact with preschool-aged students as a part of their child development class. Our preschool gives GBN students the opportunity to take what they learned in the classroom and apply it immediately. 
 
In addition to the Preschool Teacher, high school students rotate in throughout the day to assist. Under no circumstances are the high school students alone in the classroom with the preschoolers. 
 

HOW IS GBN PRESCHOOL DIFFERENT THAN OTHER PRESCHOOLS?

The preschool loves exploring different areas of the high school!  From the kitchen to the gymnastics room we always find ways to make learning fun and active! The GBN Preschool loves incorporating cross curricular learning pieces to help involve all high school students and disciplines.  

One of our favorite projects last year was working with the fashion class! The fashion class was responsible for designing, shopping for materials and creating a one of a kind piece for each preschooler to wear during the Halloween Fashion Show and our May Preschool Graduation!
 

WHAT WILL MY CHILD LEARN IN THE GBN PRESCHOOL?

Our curriculum is play-based with a focus on curricular areas and socialization. Along with the development of core academics such as reading, writing, science and math, we focus on the development of social skills and conflict resolution. We practice effective intra personal problem solving techniques, like using our words, not our hands when upset and practicing effective positive communication.
 
Each year, the Preschool Teacher creates a theme calendar based on Kindergarten preparation, interests of the students and secular holidays. Each weekly theme contains math, reading, writing, science, social studies and art/cooking!
