Our Kindergarten has a maximum of 16 children in the class.  This smaller class size allows us to offer an individualized curriculum for all students while still meeting the Common Core Standards.  Students who attend Long Grove Country School bring many gifts and it is our job to help unwrap those gifts.  Come and let your child explore and learn in our hands-on environment where we are able to use both our indoor and outdoor classrooms. Using themes like...traveling to outer space in our rocket made out of boxes.  Going under the sea and meeting an octopus, a crab and more.  Celebrating Cinco De Mayo by learning some of the language, music and customs. Mrs. Gill and the kindergarten class will have fun in a safe and nurturing environment. We excel at challenging each student to their fullest potential, while giving each child the confidence to be successful in school now and in the future.  We look forward to working with each family as a team to help your child learn, grow, and blossom as a student.  

Call to schedule a time to meet with us to learn more about our program.

General Info

​Jr./sr. Kindergarten


My kids love summer camp!  As a parent, I love that my children are doing several hands-on activities that you might not see in a traditional summer camp environment.  They especially love meeting the animals and exploring the gardens.
