Start your child on the path to success with Bedford Park District's Playschool Program. Our Early Childhood Room is located in the Community Building and provides an atmosphere where learning and fun go hand in hand. Our curriculum provides a nurturing environment that supports exploration and education to prepare children for a lifetime of learning.

Our staff, under the guidance of our Playschool Director Adriana Valenzuela, demonstrates respect for each and every child in their care. The staff ensures that each child learns and grows and their own pace. They encourage curiosity, discovery, and imagination as a foundation for learning.

Registration for residents and siblings of current students takes place during the month of April. Registration for non-residents takes place on the first Monday in May. To avoid waiting in line at the Community Building that day, a lottery is held for all interested participants that contact us before 4:00PM on that day.
