Lincoln Primary

Bellwood School District 88 has a fully funded Preschool for All Program. If your child is between three and five years old, you can register your child for Pre-K. As soon as a child turns three, he or she can start school. You do not have to wait until the following school year to start school.

Our Early Childhood Program strives to provide our students with the necessary skills for lifelong learning. Research has proven when a child has preschool experience, he or she will have lasting school success and will enter kindergarten with better developed social, emotional, and academic skills than those students not attending a Pre-K program.

The Pre-K classes meet Monday through Friday. Parents have the option of selecting either the morning or afternoon session. The morning session is from 8:05 a.m. until 10:45 a.m. The afternoon session is from 12:15 p.m. until 2:55 p.m. The maximum number of children per class is 20.

For more information about our Pre-K program or to register, please give us a call at (708) 544.2815 or stop by our school office located at 3519 Wilcox in Bellwood, IL.

A Message from Our Principal

Dear Early Childhood Parents and Guardians,

Seasons Greetings and Happy Holidays to all! It is remarkable how quickly this school year is progressing, and ECC has had an outstanding first half of the school year--marked by exciting adventures in learning, a new parent communication platform, a Parent Title I Meeting, a Thanksgiving Holiday Feast, and more!

December will be both an eventful and short/condensed month with regard to student attendance in observance of the Winter Break. Please see the important December dates below, which highlights specific activities as well as corresponding dates.

Throughout the month of December, students will focus on learning various targeted letters, numbers, and sounds. Be sure to support your child outside of school by building on what students are learning inside of their individual classrooms. You can do this by pointing out letters and numbers in students’ natural environment and the world around them.

Please also see the December ‘ Upstart ’ Calendar filled with suggested daily fun activities for you and your preschooler to develop early literacy skills.
