Since 1958 Registration

Registration for the 2019-2020 school year is complete! Please contact us to inquire about openings for the current year.  If you would like to schedule a time to observe a class, please call the school (630-833-2141) 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.

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 will then 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.
