Wehde Early Childhood Center serves approximately 200 preschool students annually and is housed within Glacier Ridge Elementary, located at 1120 Village Road in Crystal Lake. The center provides two quality preschool programs for 3- and 4-year-olds:


  • a special education program, which provides speech and language therapy and diagnostic/screening services for eligible students with an Individualized Education Plan (IEP); and
