Penny Greenwood


Welcome to Marycrest Early Childhood Center where our motto is Providing Bright Beginnings to Joliet's Children and Families! We work cooperatively with our families to provide a bright beginning to an even brighter school career. At Marycrest Early Childhood Center, our dedicated staff ensures that all of our students are ready to learn when they leave our program by providing opportunities for children to grow in four developmental areas: Social/Emotional, Physical, Cognitive and Language. We carefully design a friendly, safe and inclusive environment where every child is considered precious and is loved, cherished and nurtured. We welcome and encourage our parents to participate in their child's education in a variety of ways. Together as a family, we will ensure a bright start for our youngest student.



Happy Principal Appreciation Day

Thank you to all our District 86 principals for their hard work and all that they do for students, families and staff members.
