Beard School is an Early Childhood center with two different types of programs. We have a very large preschool program and diverse learner program. We have full and half day preschool programs comprised of general education, blended and instructional support programs. All of our preschool programs have a Gold Circle of Quality ExceleRate rating with the state of Illinois. Our programs promote language, literacy, math, cognitive and motor skill development while nurturing social emotional learning. Teachers use the Creative curriculum to provide a balanced literacy program to all students. If students require continued supports after preschool, then they are referred to our diverse learner program where we will continue to provide students with needed supports until 3rd grade.  Staff members are trained specialists in working with students on the autism spectrum and other significant disabilities. Beard’s cluster programs are specifically designed to have an academic focus integrated with social and emotional learning. Our role is to prepare all students to return to their next school setting and provide them with the foundations that will enable them to be successful.
