Kindergartners have so much to learn and at Wesley we believe children learn best through play & social interaction. Children engage in fun and interesting activities to meet the individual physical, emotional, and educational needs of each child. Activities are planned through weekly themes. Themes may include Dinosaurs, authors such as Eric Carle, The Solar System, Community Helpers, Shapes & Colors, Insects, The Alphabet, and Our Neighborhood. Daily activities focus on reinforcing kindergarten skills through all areas of the curriculum. Large group activities are alternated with free play through our child-friendly learning centers. Learning centers include writing, science & math, computers, art, dramatic play, games, listening, reading, sensory, and a block area. Large motor, outside time, and/or gym time is also incorporated into the day.
Each classroom is staffed with an experienced Teacher and Teacher’s Assistant. Our teachers hold an elementary education or early childhood education degrees. Our assistants have previous child-related work experience and have taken courses in education and may also have education degrees. Each program has a maximum daily class-size of 21 per day. Our enthusiastic teachers & assistants provide children with a safe and caring learning environment.

Dayz Off Camp Program:
Wesley offers our kindergarteners a Dayz Off Camp for all children on days when District #34 Schools are not in session including winter and spring break. Kindergartners participate in a variety of activities. Fun-filled fieldtrips may also be scheduled. This program is located at Wesley’s mainsite; 727 Harlem Ave. in Glenview.

The cost for this day is included in your regular tuition fee for Full Time Wesley KDG. Full-time children are considered those who are scheduled to attend M-F and six or more hours per day.
Children NOT scheduled for full time but are regularly scheduled for 6 or more hours per day will pay an additional fee of $15 if you attend a “Dayz Off Camp on a scheduled day and $30 if you attend on a non-scheduled day.
Children NOT scheduled for full time and are regularly scheduled for less than 6 hours per day will pay an additional fee of $25 per day if you attend a “Dayz off Camp” on a regularly scheduled day or $40 on a non-scheduled day. Because of staffing requirements, if you have registered to attend this day, you will be charged the extra fee whether in attendance or not.
