We are a small school, where every child can be the leader, every child can have a turn, every child can contribute to the discussion and ask questions, every child can shine.
Teachers send home to the parents detailed lesson plans a month in advance. This helps communication between parents and children – you will know what to discuss with your child each day, and make him comfortable about what he will be doing in school that day.
With our reading, phonics, writing, and math programs, our goal is to instill in the children a genuine joy of learning – with a positive attitude toward and about themselves.
And to have fun!

*Parent version of "I Can Problem Solve" is “Raising a Thinking Child”
We use The Creative Curriculum as the basis for our educational practices. This system is a well-researched and tested environmentally based curriculum – one that matches our philosophy that “the overall development of a child can be dramatically enhanced with the proper environment and knowledgeable, caring adults.”
We use I Can Problem Solve (ICPS) and Raising a Thinking Child for problem solving, conflict resolution, and logical thinking.
Note: ICPS is used in most Naperville grade schools.
We schedule parent/teacher conferences two times a year. Our teachers are so dedicated to the children, they give the parents their HOME PHONE NUMBER and email address. We will take good care of your child!
Our monthly tuition is paid only once a month.
For the entire school year, September through May, there are NINE payments.
If you compare prices, you need to know how many payments must be made for the entire school year.

Enrichment Curriculum for Kindergarten Success
We have been thrilled with the Enriched Kindergarten Program at Learning Is Fun Preschool! Our son has truly enjoyed everything about the class. He loves his school work, as well as time spent with friends. As parents, we have been so impressed with the academics and personalized approach. The advanced learning, and the attention focused on current kindergarten curriculum, will completely prepare him for kindergarten in the fall. He is being challenged every day, with a curriculum presented in a no-pressure, nurturing, fun environment. He also loves the balance of enriched programs such as art, Spanish, music, science, and gym. We have been very pleased with the personal approach his teacher has provided. She has gone the extra mile and sends email updates as well as offers optional at-home learning through worksheets, counting games, writing games and site word flash cards. We have been impressed with this seamless home and school learning approach. My son has truly thrived socially, academically and most importantly loves school. We are thankful for the team and are so happy with the decision we made a year ago to enroll him in this five day a week program!
My son has been in the 5-Day Pre-K program since the fall of 2012. He adores his teacher and loves going to school! My husband, Corey, and I have been very impressed with the teacher and her curriculum. We love the atmosphere at Learning is Fun, small class sizes (maximum of ten children) which allow for individual attention for the students. His teacher is readily available to parents for questions and concerns; I have contacted her numerous times with questions and she is quite responsive and in a very timely manner. LIF is not too big, which is nice, so the students can get to know children in the other classes as well, which allows for more socialization skills to develop. We also love the Holiday Program, the Halloween, Valentine's Day and Spring parties, which are special events for the children that are not at all preschools. It is a precious way to celebrate these holidays in a memorable and fun way for the children and for the parents, too! We couldn't be more pleased with the program, so much so that we have signed our younger son up for the program for 2013-2014!
