Ready, Set, Go
2023-2024 School Year
The Ready Set Go Program is designed to introduce children, ages 2-3, to the daily and weekly routine of preschool. Students meet for an hour and 15 minutes each day and class will focus on the children's overall developmental needs by providing a stimulating environment through hands-on experiences and play. The daily curriculum is based on the Future Foxes Preschool, but adapted to meet the needs of this age group. Our goal is to create a welcoming and safe space for your child to confidently grow socially and emotionally with their peers while reinforcing basic educational skills including letter, number, color and shape recognition. Please note, students do not need to be fully potty-trained to enroll within this program; however, parents must be available for diaper changes as needed.
Ready, Set, Go is for children ages 2 and 3. Participants must be 2 by the start of class.
The Yorkville Parks and Recreation Department partners with the Yorkville Community Unit School District 115 to provide unparalleled opportunities that will bring student enrichment to be prepare your child for preschool!
This partnership gives both the Yorkville Parks and Recreation Department and District 115 the ability to work closely together, share resources and create a curriculum based on the current district standards. This will create a seamless and successful transition from Ready Set Go to Future Foxes Preschool and eventually into Kindergarten!
The Ready Set Go Program will provide a unique experience for both the students and Yorkville High School students who are interested in pursuing education as a career. The classrooms are designed for high school students to explore and gain experience within the education field. Through this partnership, these future educators will gain experience through both observation and by assisting within the classroom under the guidance of staff. This unique opportunity provides a warm and engaging environment for your preschool student to learn and develop.
The Ready Set Go Program is located at the District 115 Athletic/Activities Building located at 702 Game Farm Road, Yorkville. This secure facility was newly renovated in 2022 and designed specifically with our student's overall development and safety in mind. This location offers a fenced-in outdoor space and playground to utilize throughout the school year.
The Ready Set Go! Program will be offered for the 2023-2024 school year with both morning and afternoon sessions available. Classes meet for an hour and fifteen minutes each day, and focus on developmental needs by providing a stimulating environment for students through hands-on learning experiences.
