2019-2020 School Year


The Chicago Ridge Park District now offers an appropriate preschool after-care program with specialized activities for children after preschool!  We've created a learning environment where children are encouraged to explore and discover.  While our curriculum is structured, its flexible framework encourages children to socialize and explore.  This approach allows children to develop independent thought and confidence while experimenting with new ideas.

Children will engage in arts and crafts, music, cooking activities, centers of learning and sports.  Our PAC program is held at the Freedom Activity Center but we do utilize our other facilities and parks at times. PAC is offered Monday through Friday, 11am-2pm and 3pm-6pm starting August 22, 2019.


OPEN HOUSE August 15th at 6:30pm at the

Freedom Activity Center!
