Kindergarten before and after school care is available for children who attend morning Kindergarten and includes a hot lunch that meets state nutritional guidelines. Care is available on many non-attendance school days.
The Center 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 home work 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.
Full Day Early Learning Program
Our early learning program is open to 3, 4 and 5-year-old children and includes half day and full day enrollment options. Hot lunch that meets state nutritional guidelines will be served.
The early learning program will be staffed by highly qualified, experienced teachers who meet or exceed the state educational requirements. Our researched based curriculum will engage the children thru 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.
Priority registration for Fall 2020 is given to the Early Learning Program, Kindergarten program and currently enrolled families. We will notify new applicants by March 15 of our 1st - 5th grade availability.
Once your child is accepted to the Center, a non-refundable deposit is due to hold your child’s place at the Center. This deposit will be applied to the first tuition payment.
At this time, we are able to provide before and after school care and enrichment for children attending morning Kindergarten.
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 or call (630) 654-4014 and we will be glad to answer any questions you may have.
