• Matteson Elementary School District 162 is committed to serving preschool children and their families. It is the District’s belief that preparation for academic success must begin during the child’s early learning years.

    Matteson School District 162 offers three preschool programs: Preschool for All (PFA), Preschool for All Expansion Grant (PFAE) and Early Childhood (EC).

    Preschool for All Entrance Requirements: Children must be screened to determine eligibility for the Preschool for All programs. The Preschool Expansion Grant is state funded with a goal to expand access to full-day early childhood education and comprehensive services to the most at-risk 4-year-olds. Parents/Guardians should contact the Richton Square School at 708-283-2706 to schedule a screening appointment. Once a child has been screened and accepted into the program, the parents/guardians must register the child within seven days of the date of eligibility notification.
