Welcome to Thunderbird Preschool

Founded in 1965, Thunderbird Preschool is a family-owned preschool in Crystal Lake, IL with a reputation for excellence in early childhood education. Throughout the years, we have worked to develop warm, long-lasting relationships with both children and families. We are proud to welcome back many alumni each year and currently serve 2nd and 3rd generation families. Thunderbird Preschool is committed to providing caring, fun, and interactive early childhood learning experiences in Crystal Lake, IL.

We provide half-day preschool programs for children ages 2-5. To help each child grow physically, socially, emotionally, and cognitively, we place an emphasis on hands-on learning. In addition, our field trips and special events provide families with opportunities to take part in the learning process. All of our teachers are DCFS teacher-qualified and complete CPR & First Aid training annually.

“Thank you for the loving, caring, learning environment.”

“Thank you for the wonderful foundation to our children’s education.”

“Our years at Thunderbird have been an amazing journey for both our children and us!”
