PARENT PERSPECTIVE

FOR OUR PARENTS…

Our teachers communicate in different ways with parents to give them updates about their child and to provide a more successful learning environment. We do parent-teacher conferences twice a year, send home monthly lesson plans, post events/pictures on social media (Facebook, Instagram (private) and Twitter (private), make phone calls and send emails to our parents. Our teachers love to email photographs to the parents of their child “in action” here at school.

PARENT VOLUNTEERS…

We LOVE our parents and invite you to be partners in your child’s education here at Learning Is Fun. We offer many opportunities for you to support our program and share in your child’s learning experience. Parents can sign up to be a “Mystery” Reader in their child’s class, which allows parents to come in and read a favorite book to the class. Parents can volunteer to help with a special project, send in supplies for a class party, or with their time at home (coloring, cutting, etc.).   Parents can also support our programs here at Learning Is Fun by eating at various local restaurants, when restaurants host a fundraiser to help our school.

FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY…

Learning Is Fun invites the whole family to certain events throughout the year. We have an Open House for our families every August, so you can come in and meet the teacher and other families whose child will be in the same class.  This experience also gives your child an opportunity to become familiar with their new surroundings while you are still with them.

We are proud of our many special programs throughout the year in which parents, grandparents, and family friends can attend.  We have a Fall Program, Winter Program, and Spring Program where your child will perform in our big, beautiful sanctuary.  All these special events offer an opportunity for your child to sing songs they have learned and to shine like a star!

WHAT PARENTS ARE SAYING…

Learning is Fun Preschool has been a part of our family for 14 years. I say a part of our family because when we drop off our children we know that they will be loved and nurtured by all the teachers.

Upon moving back to Naperville we were looking for a preschool for our 2nd son and Learning is Fun was highly recommended. 6 of our 7 children have attended Learning is Fun for their preschool education.
We could not have made a better decision for our children’s preschool. Learning is Fun’s curriculum also involves Spanish, science, and art to give children the headstart they need to excel in school. 
Their kindergarten prep program helped each of our children to be more than ready for kindergarten. Learning is Fun always goes way beyond the preschool standards.
Every teacher we have had at Learning is Fun has made each of our children feel special. They send home detailed lesson plans, answer questions in a timely manner and post updates frequently. 
Learning is Fun will always have a special place in our family. It is great to look at the videos of our children in their Holiday programs and my children all still know the songs. 
We highly recommend making Learning is Fun a part of your family!”

“We have been thrilled with the Enriched Kindergarten Program at Learning Is Fun Preschool! Our son has truly enjoyed everything about the class. He loves his school work, as well as time spent with friends. As parents, we have been so impressed with the academics and personalized approach. The advanced learning, and the attention focused on current kindergarten curriculum, will completely prepare him for kindergarten in the fall.  He is being challenged every day, with a curriculum presented in a no-pressure, nurturing, fun environment. He also loves the balance of enriched programs such as art, Spanish, music, science, and gym. We have been very pleased with the personal approach his teacher has provided. She has gone the extra mile and sends email updates as well as offers optional at-home learning through worksheets, counting games, writing games and site word flash cards. We have been impressed with this seamless home and school learning approach.  My son has truly thrived socially, academically and most importantly loves school. We are thankful for the team and are so happy with the decision we made a year ago to enroll him in this five day a week program!”

“My son has been in the 5-Day Pre-K program. He adores his teacher and loves going to school! My husband, Corey, and I have been very impressed with the teacher and her curriculum. We love the atmosphere at Learning is Fun, small class sizes (maximum of ten children) which allow for individual attention for the students. His teacher is readily available to parents for questions and concerns; I have contacted her numerous times with questions and she is quite responsive and in a very timely manner. LIF is not too big, which is nice, so the students can get to know children in the other classes as well, which allows for more socialization skills to develop. We also love the Holiday Program, the Halloween, Valentine’s Day and Spring parties, which are special events for the children that are not at all preschools. It is a precious way to celebrate these holidays in a memorable and fun way for the children and for the parents, too! We couldn’t be more pleased with the program, so much so that we have signed our younger son up for the program for next year!”

“I have had three children go to Learning Is Fun over the span of four years. The teacher consistency, the environment of security with which the children are surrounded has lead to a wonderful growth in my children socially, emotionally, and academically. I have been extremely happy with the pre-school and highly recommend it to friends.”

“My daughter was quite shy before starting to preschool. She has now blossomed into a confident preschooler under her teacher’s guidance.”

“LIF has a wonderful, caring, and professional staff. This past fall was my first time sending one of my children to preschool, and I was a little apprehensive. But you made it so easy for both myself and my son. From that first day forward, he loves going to school. This fall I will have both my children there. Even though we live in Aurora, I don’t mind driving a little further know my children are in great care.”
