.

My daughter attended Whittier when she was 4. It is more of a pre-K than a preschool. It is a free school to attend as it is a public preschool, but it is hard to get into it as there is ALOT of demand for it's services. The screening process to go there in the fall usually is done the January before, so, if you want your child to attend, it is wise to begin calling the Dec the year before. It is geared toward children that could end up "at risk" or unprepared for Kindergarten, so, you are better off being blunt and honest if your child has a special need or if you have a special concern for your child. This is NOT the time to sugar coat your child's behavior or reading abilities. The teacher my child had was competent, but she had troubles keeping up with my child. Overall, my and my child's experience was positive.

PROS: Free to the Public (Waukegan residents)
CONS: Lengthy testing process to get in
