USD 446 would like to celebrate American Education Week by spotlighting our schools and staff. Today's highlight is Riley Early Learning Center. Riley Early Learning Center is where our Pre Kindergarten students learn and grow! Riley Early Learning Center opened in 2018. With this addition, we are able to offer more classes and thus provide an early learning experience for more students. It's a good problem to have, but we have outgrown our space and plans are currently underway to construct a new early learning center just west of the board of education office, which is slated to open Fall of 2023. Riley Early Learning Center currently has the capacity to serve 180 three- and four-year-old students.
American Education Week happens the week prior to Thanksgiving and is designed to honor the team of people who work in our nation's public schools, from the bus driver and classroom teacher to the cafeteria worker and administrative staff, plus countless others.
