LCNS- New Home


LCNS is a non-discriminatory, not-for-profit preschool administered by its director with support from a volunteer parent board of directors.

LCNS is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). Accreditation recognizes high-quality early learning environments through a rigorous and transformative quality-improvement system that uses research-based standards. NAEYC administers the largest and most widely recognized accreditation system for early childhood schools, of which less than 10% of all childcare centers, preschools, and kindergartens nationally achieve.

LCNS is licensed by the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) and affiliated with the Illinois Association for the Education of Young Children (IAEYC) as well as a consortium of local preschools through the Early Childhood Educators of Deerfield Schools (ECEDS).
