Penny Lane Schools adhere to the Illinois Kindergarten Early Learning Standards.
These standards and quality indicators reflect current knowledge, research findings and shared beliefs about high-quality,

standards, they should be used as the base for reflective teachers as they create learning experiences that build on what
children already know and capture their interest in learning.” Barbara Bowman President Emeritus Erikson Institute.
