Federated Preschool was the first preschool established in Sycamore 46 years ago!

Early on, the congregation at Federated recognized the need for early childhood education, and a place where children could be in a positive, learning environment when they could not be with their parents at home.

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.

Federated Preschool is one of the church’s most nurtured ministries.

Please Note:  We are currently enrolling for the 2015-2016 school year. We fill our classrooms rather quickly and only enroll 16 children in each room.

Welcome!  Thanks for visiting us on the internet and for your interest in our program. The preschool begins it’s 46th year this fall!

We believe children need to be in the present. Children learn by participating in life experiences and hands-on activities.

We believe children are unique individuals with amazing ideas and thoughts regarding the world in which they live.

We believe in providing quality experiences within our school setting to foster growth and future success.

We believe in modeling positive and nurturing behavior. We provide a safe and healthy environment.

We believe by investing and making a commitment in every child, we will guide and support them in their learning and developing.
