Enroll your child with us for an amazing childhood school adventure that will instill a love of learning and create a lifetime of fantastic memories for your child! Not only do we spend most of our days outside, we have so much learning everyday.
LGCS has written an enchanting literature series that reinforces our themes at school. It has been so much fun watching our children get engaged in the books and even contributing to the storylines. We are thrilled to be sharing this series with you. Visit our online store for more info on our literature series and educational toys to continue the magic at home.
Trivia: Did you know that the average school goes outside for only 25 minutes per day?
On days where weather permits, LGCS students enjoy being outside all day long! Each class has an indoor and an outdoor classroom.

Welcome to Long Grove Country School (LGCS). We are located on 5 beautiful acres in Long Grove. LGCS is an education center with programs running all day from 8:00am-4pm for Preschool age children through Elementary including Outdoor Elementary Clubhouse Enrichment and After-Care.
LGCS believes that an integrated outdoor education program can meld traditional classroom pedagogy with the benefits of being more connected with nature. Children learn to be stewards of our environment while experiencing many lifelong health benefits of enjoying a healthy lifestyle and building strong motor skills. An outdoor education program allows for a hands-on approach to learning. Children can engage their whole bodies as they explore, learn, and problem solve. Basic to complex science and math concepts are easily grasped and children grow their expressive language and artistry skills by explaining the world around them.
At Long Grove Country School, we believe in developing the whole child to help young minds sprout and grow. Our SPROUTS teaching philosophy is incorporated into every aspect of our day.
LGCS has created an integrated programs that addresses core Illinois learning standards using farm and nature topics. We plan to be outdoors as much as Mother Nature allows us to be so children can interact with their environment, and each other, in a safe setting.
