About PreK

In PreK, one of our main goals is to prepare your child for a smooth
transition into kindergarten. With the help of a classroom aide, we’ll work on developing each child’s academic and social skills, while encouraging independence. Through engaging, hands-on activities, we hope to instill a lifelong love for learning in each of our students. We can’t wait to see how much our PreK friends grow and learn this year!


St. Ann School is a listed provider for Illinois Action for Children. Please call our school office for more information on the application process.
