History of the Program

During the 1990-1991 school year, Hawthorn District 73 applied for and received a grant from the state of Illinois for a State Funded Preschool. We currently serve 120 children in this program. Beginning in 2008, we added a program of Early Childhood Special Education, through which we provide Special Education services to 60 children.


Children must be screened and determined eligible for the program. If you are interested in participating, please complete and return the Inquiry Form.
