Little Learners, Preschool, and Pre-K Program

Our early learning program includes classes for

  • Little Learners - 30 months by Sept. 1st to 3 years old & fully potty trained

  • Preschool - 3 years old by Sept. 1st to 4 years old & fully potty trained

  • Pre-K - 4 years old by Sept. 1st to 5 years old

All early learning classes include options for full day (more than 5 hours), half day (up to 5 hours) and part day (8:45am - 11:15am) enrollment options.  Morning snack, afternoon snack, and hot lunch, which meet state nutritional guidelines, are served to children with us at the corresponding times. 

The early learning program is staffed by highly qualified, experienced teachers who meet or exceed the state educational requirements.  Our researched based curriculum will engage the children through hands-on learning center activities and is designed to meet their individual emotional, social and cognitive needs.  Our philosophy is that children learn best through play in a developmentally appropriate, engaging and nurturing environment. 

 

Before and After School Program

 

The before and after school program is open to children from Prospect, Walker, and Manning schools and includes full or part time enrollment options. Bus service is provided to Walker and Manning schools.

The school age program is staffed by experienced, highly qualified teachers who meet or exceed DCFS licensing standards. Our nurturing teachers plan a variety of inspiring learning activities and provide a safe, comfortable and enriching environment for the children.  After school activities may include dedicated homework time, indoor or outdoor large motor activities, arts, science, cooking, yoga, board games, crafts, and/or quiet reading time, to name a few.  Activities vary throughout the week to encourage interest and participation. A daily healthy snack is included. 

Kindergarten before and after school care is available and includes a hot lunch that meets state nutritional guidelines.

Enrollment

Families are welcome to enroll at the Academy at any time when space is available.  

Priority registration for Fall 2021 is given to our currently enrolled families. Open enrollment begins January 25, 2021.

Once your child is accepted to the Academy, a non-refundable deposit is due to hold your child’s place in a classroom. This deposit will be applied to the first tuition payment.

Due to licensing capacity, the Center can only register a certain number of children; therefore some families may be notified that they have been placed on a wait list until space becomes available.

Please email the Center at kidsacademy@chcpc.org or call (630) 654-4014 and Kristin Duy, Interim Director, will be glad to answer any questions you may have.

To apply, print and complete the CPC Kids' Academy Application for enrollment and mail it along with the application fee to the Academy. Applications are also available at the church office.
