In 1942, a community of parents and the Glencoe Board of Education worked together to establish Glencoe Junior Kindergarten and Nursery School (GJK), a preschool based upon “good modern educational methods.”
More than seventy years later, GJK continues this journey as a vibrant preschool that is nationally recognized for exceeding early childhood education standards. Our highly qualified teachers use their expertise, Illinois Early Learning & Development Standards, and our personalized assessment tools to prepare your child for kindergarten and the world ahead of them! Fun fact: We’re excited to be celebrating our 75th anniversary in 2017!
"Our goal should not be to protect them from the world, but to teach them about it."
