At Risk Program
Children who do not qualify for Early Childhood Special Education Services, may be eligible for At-Risk Preschool Programming. The program is designed to provide a preschool experience for children ages 3-5 who are residents of Lake Zurich who qualify due to a variety of factors that may include (but are not limited to) economic need, low performance on the preschool screening, having a primary language other than English, and chronic illness/health concerns. The goal of the preschool is to provide students with a positive, nurturing environment that fosters social, emotional, physical and cognitive growth and development. Children must participate in an At-Risk Preschool Screening process to determine eligibility for the program. Visit the Preschool Screening section on this page for more information.
