On March 31, Governor Pritzker announced that the closure of Illinois schools will extend through April 30. District 303 school buildings are closed. Plans for remote learning to continue through April 30 are being finalized and will be communicated to parents by April 2.
At Fox Ridge, our Early Childhood team provides our youngest learners, age three through five, with opportunities to engage in learning and play in an accepting and engaging learning environment. The program is designed to serve the needs of all children (typically developing, at-risk, and those with identified disabilities), utilizing a developmentally-appropriate approach to instruction. The use of consistent schedules provides our students with a balance of experiences, including large & small group activities, indoor & outdoor play, and teacher directed & self-directed learning opportunities.
The purpose of our program, like the other D303 Early Childhood programs, is to assist families in meeting the developmental needs of our learners, to promote their educational and social-emotional growth, and to provide a safe, secure, and nurturing classroom environment.
The program emphasizes the process of growth through active, hands on experiences. Further, the program provides high quality enrichment experiences for our students, as well as activities and educational opportunities for parents and families throughout the year.
