The philosophy of the preschool program is that every child should be given the best chance to grow and develop intellectually, emotionally and socially. The program features professional staff directing activities that encourage development of individual interests, refinement of motor skills, and preparation for Kindergarten. The curriculum is based on the Illinois Early Childhood Learning Standards.
Washington Park Pavilion Preschool is a play-based program. Children build a foundation for later learning as they solve problems and increase their understanding of themselves, other people and the world around them. We set up rooms to be welcoming and inviting places for the children to explore. Students can be signed up any time during these sessions (based on availability).

Every effort is the result of a synergy of experiences and people. The Funshop program is no exception. It represents a culmination of over 40 years of work with children and families. As a company of people and collective hearts, the Funshop staff is proud to serve the Springfield community.
Funshop is an exciting, early education program for parents and children “together.” It has been uniquely designed to provide the optimal one-on-one learning experience. The program offers a unique, play-based environment where parents and children can be interactively engaged in the wonderful world of learning. The foundation of the innovative Funshop experience is a firm belief that parents are not only a child’s first teachers but also his or her most trusted and influential educators.
