For the Children!

We invite you to become part of our family – our preschool family!  We hope you visit the school and select Federated Preschool as another tool to help continue your little one’s early childhood education.

We would love for you to stop by and visit us during school hours, no appointment is needed.  For after hour visits, please contact us at 815-764-9473.  We are located at 612 West State Street in Sycamore, Illinois.

We accept and enroll students throughout the year provided there is space available.

A New School Year!

We open our doors in the fall for our 47th year of preschool.  We take pride being the first established preschool in Sycamore.

The preschool is remarkably stable…over the years there have been only two directors, each bringing a forward-thinking vision to the programs and each dedicated to supporting both parent and child in the important early years of education.

We are now enrolling for the 2016-2017 school year.  Our classrooms fill quickly and each classroom holds 16 students with one teacher and one teacher’s assistant.  Your child may enroll when they reach their 3rd birthday even if it is in the middle of the school year.  We welcome children at any time.  The school is licensed by the Department of Children and Family Services.  We are members of 4C – Community Coordinated Child Care.

You may download a registration form or stop by and pick one up during school hours; no appointment is needed.

We believe

As educators we respect where each child is in their development and understand where they need to go.  We promote positive planned and spontaneous learning moments to develop lifelong skills.  We encourage children to do things interesting to them while we open up the possibility of much more while investigating, learning and playing.

We hope you will visit our preschool family and see if we are the right program for you and your child in their next step of their life-long journey of learning.
