Welcome to Stateline Kids 2022 Preschool Guide for the Stateline! There are many great preschool options to choose from in the Stateline whether you’re looking for general education, a specific teaching style, or a faith-based school.

If you’re looking for a preschool for your 2 – 5 year old in the Rockford, Roscoe, Loves Park, Rockton, Janesville, Belvidere or Beloit area, check out this guide to help you make your decision.

All preschools listed are privately owned which means that you do not have to live in the city where they are located for your child to attend.

This guide is separated by city/town so you can jump down to the area you’re interested in or scroll through the entire guide.

If you are looking for public preschool options, please contact the school district where you reside.

COVID-19 SAFETY: This year, many schools have new procedures in place to safely operate during the pandemic. Class size is smaller, masks or face shields are required, and parents are asked to not bring their children to school if they are displaying any COVID-19 symptoms.
