Welcome to Grand Avenue Preschools, a family owned and operated early childhood center, providing care and education in the western suburbs of Burr Ridge, LaGrange Highlands and Western Springs.




Our MORNING PRESCHOOL camps begin on June 8 through Aug 12 and are for ages 3-5.  They are held Tuesday, Wednesday, & Thursday.  New themes  every two weeks.

Our highly popular PART DAY and FULL DAY themed camps are open to kids ages 3-12 and start the week of June 7 through Aug 13.  Children are divided into age specific groups with new themes every two weeks. We offer flexible schedules; you only pay for the days you reserve to allow for families busy schedules and summer vacations.  Students will have plenty of indoor and outdoor playtime with a mix of fun math and language arts activities to refresh their skills and prepare them for fall in-person learning.


To sign up, go to the Summer Camp tab and print your registration form and email to the Burr Ridge or Western Springs location. We offer flexible schedules; you only pay for the days you reserve.  Field trips are TBD. 

We will continue to follow all current IDPH guidelines.


On-site owner management ensures that quality is a habit that is reinforced and managed each and every day.  We have an open door policy – your family and children are always welcome.
