Early Childhood Education

Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE)
Early Childhood Special Education services for children ages three through five are provided through the school district.  ECSE professionals and related services personnel provide specialized educational services to children with disabilities in a variety of early childhood settings to meet the developmental learning needs of these children.

Early Childhood Developmental Enrichment Center (ECDEC)
ECDEC is an early childhood program that serves children between the ages of 3 and 5 years old who have been identified as being “at-risk” and who live within the School District 23 boundaries.  Students are identified as "at-risk" through the Early Childhood screening process.

Early Childhood Screening
The district offers monthly Early Childhood screenings at Eisenhower School for children between the ages of 3 and 5 years.  The screening process allows District 23 personnel to use play-based informal interactions with your child as well as a screening checklist to identify children who could be "at-risk" of developmental delays and could benefit from developmental enrichment to be prepared to begin Kindergarten on par with their same-age peers.

District 23 holds screenings on a monthly basis at Eisenhower School.  If you feel your child is not developing at an appropriate level please contact Eisenhower School (847-870-3875) to request an appointment for an Early Childhood Screening.
