DOWNERS GROVE - The Illinois State Board of Education recently awarded Downers Grove Grade School District 58’s Grove Children’s Preschool with the Gold Circle Quality of Excellence on its 2018-19 Preschool for All state audit report.
The gold rating is the highest score that an Illinois preschool can achieve, and this is the second consecutive time that Grove Children's Preschool has earned this level of recognition.
“The teachers and staff of Grove Children’s Preschool work hard every day to deliver the highest quality education and care for each of our preschool students, and I am very proud that this work has been recognized once again with the State’s prestigious gold rating,” said Preschool Coordinator Jackelyn Cadard.
Grove Children’s Preschool aims to meet the developmental and individual needs of all children in a safe, inclusive and nurturing environment, while promoting educational success through engaging and collaborative learning experiences.
When the Illinois State Board of Education awards the Gold Circle Quality of Excellence to a preschool program, that designation is active for three years. Grove Children’s Preschool first earned the rating in August 2016 for 2016-2019. Grove completed another comprehensive state audit last school year, and once again earned the Gold Circle Quality of Excellence. This designation will be active from 2019-2022.
