Since 1958 Registration

Registration for the 2021-2022 school year began in December 2020! Please contact us to inquire about receiving a registration form.  If you would like to schedule a time to observe a class, please call the school (630-833-2141) during school hours (7:30am-3:00pm Monday-Friday) and we will be happy to help you. We ask that small children not accompany you on observations made during class time, as this becomes distracting to the children in class.  **Unfortunately due to current restrictions, we are unable to do tours of our school at this time.  

Registration Procedure

To register your child, please call or email the school to request a registration form and one will be sent to you or you can come by the school to pick one up. During the registration period, there is a box outside of the front door of the school that contains registration forms. You can return it to the school or mail it along with your $55.00 registration fee per child (a maximum of $90 per family) to:

Buttons and Bows Preschool
PO Box 285
Elmhurst, IL 60126

Note: The registration fee is refundable only if your child does not get into the class of your choice.


    • Returning Students - All forms received by the end of the day on Friday, December 11, 2020 are eligible for early registration and will be processed randomly together.  Forms turned in after December 11 will be processed along with new students in the order they were received.
    • Alumni Families - All forms turned in by Friday, December 11, 2020 will be processed after those of returning students in the order they were received.

Buttons and Bows Lunch Club usually is offered every Monday and Tuesday throughout the school year for children enrolled in the 3s and 4s programs. Your child may participate in Lunch Club on his/her school day. Children may sign up for the whole school year or on a weekly or monthly basis. Children who attend the Morning Classes stay one hour longer. They arrive at school at 8:30 and then are dismissed at 12:00. Children who attend the afternoon classes arrive at school one hour earlier at 11:15 and stay until regular dismissal time of 2:45. **Registration for Lunch Club will take place in August if the current State and Health Guidelines allow.**
