Marycrest Early Childhood Center students enjoyed having 55 fifth grade students from William B. Orenic (W.B.O.) Intermediate School visit them in their classrooms. The older students shared books and activities with the younger students they planned during their Citizenship through Community Service class. This is the fourth year students from Troy Community Consolidated School District 30-C have visited a Joliet Public Schools District 86 school.
Each trimester, W.B.O. students work with teacher Chelsea Stoltz to choose a service project they want to pursue. The students work on their interpersonal skills they need for the service and discover why giving of their time is good for the community.
Marycrest Early Childhood Center houses the preschool program for Joliet Public Schools District 86. Currently 501 students, aged 3-5 years old, attend the District 86 half day preschool program which provides opportunities for children to grow in four developmental areas: social/emotional, physical, cognitive, and language.
