About Us

Dedicated Staff

We feel very fortunate to have a wonderful staff of professional teachers that have been with us for years. 

First-Rate Curriculum

Long Grove Country School is an education center with programs running all day long from 7am-6pm.  All programs are theme-based.  Families have the flexibility to choose which programs their child participates in during the week.  Some children stay all day and others stay for only a couple of programs weekly.  

Our Mission

We pride ourselves on working as a team with parents to help appropriately challenge each child and foster their love of learning.  


Long Grove Country School has been educating and nurturing Preschoolers for over 30 years.  We offer theme-based Preschool, Jr. Kindergarten, Sr. Kindergarten, and Summer Camp.  We are also adding an afternoon Jr. Kindergarten that will run on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.

Additional Programs:  

  • Before & After Care is available for LGCS and Willow Grove.
  • Polish Preschool & Summer Camp.

Please contact us with any questions or to schedule a tour.

Farm Setting


Long Grove Country School is located on 5 beautiful acres in Long Grove.  We have kept the historic farm setting allowing our students to have the opportunity to learn from both indoor and outdoor classrooms.
