    Welcome to the Hillsboro Pre-Kindergarten Program Information Page!


    We have 3 locations for our Pre-K programs: 



    • Hillsboro Community Child Development Center (HCCDC)
    Hillsboro Preschool for All Program was recently awarded the Gold Circle of Quality!  This is the highest level of quality a program can be recognized for by the Illinois State Board of Education through ExceleRate Illinois.  To learn more about Illinois Preschool Quality Ratings go to http://www.excelerateillinois.com/.

    Hillsboro District #3 Pre-K Programs have been serving children and families in the communities of Butler, Coffeen, Donnellson, Hillsboro, Irving, Panama, Taylor Springs and Witt, since 1986.   

    Our Pre-K classrooms are funded by a grant from the Illinois State Board of Education and serve children 3-5 years of age.  There are no fees or charges for attending Pre-K.  We are located at 3 attendance sites in Hillsboro District #3; Coffeen Elementary School, Hillsboro Child Development Center, and at the Hillsboro Free Methodist Church.    All 3 sites offer the same family involvement activities, parent resources, developmentally appropriate curriculum, certified Early Childhood Teachers, and state certified teaching assistants.   We offer half-day classes (a.m. & p.m.) 5 days a week.  We offer bussing to the Coffeen site for students throughout the entire school district. 

    Hillsboro Pre-K classrooms provide the least restrictive inclusionary setting for all children, regardless of their developmental level or disability, by fully blending Pre-Kindergarten and Early Childhood Special Education services.  Call the Pre-K Office at Coffeen Elementary School, 217-534-2314 for information about any of our attendance centers or programs.
