Little Scouts Preschool

Program Information

Little Scouts Preschool Program is operated in conjunction with nationally renowned Lake Forest High School. In a structured yet nurturing environment Little Scouts offers quality care and developmentally appropriate activities for children six weeks to five years old.

The mission of the Little Scouts program is to serve the Lake Forest High School faculty and the surrounding community. Our goal is to provide a safe and happy environment where children can grow and learn. We encourage creativity, critical thinking skills, and cooperation to accomplish common goals. The Little Scouts staff is dedicated to providing the best possible care and instruction in an environment that is stimulating to children and encourages exploration and independent thinking. We feel that play is children’s work, and we support a seamless integration of literacy, science, and math concepts through theme-based learning activities

Little Scouts has been part of Lake Forest High School and the surrounding communities for over 20 years. Throughout that time, Little Scouts has evolved according to the needs of the population it serves. Little Scouts offers full day and half-day programs. Currently, Little Scouts operates from 6:45 AM to 5:15 PM Monday through Friday.
