Our Program

"Just Like Home"

Philosophy

We believe that children learn best when they learn to make their own decisions.  In a play-based environment, age-appropriate activities are provided to allow for positive decision making.  There is a balance between teacher directed, and child initiated learning.  Curriculum is not just for preschool, we have curriculum, observations, assessments and activities in every classroom.  We also have a cook who prepares low-salt, low-sugar meals each day on-site.  We want our children to feel as though or center is 'Just Like Home'.

Classrooms

We are licensed to care for 88 children from 6 weeks through 6 years.  Our rooms include:

  • Infant Room
  • Toddler Room
  • Junior Preschool Room:  Two Year Olds
  • Preschool: Three Year Olds
  • Pre-Kindergarten: Four Year Olds

 

Staff

Our staff have been carefully selected based on background, experience, and education.  Some teachers are just beginning their careers and others have spent their lives in early childhood education.  Our site also serves as an educational site for McHenry County College students.

Parent Connections

Making connections between a child's home and school are important to us.  Parents can take on an active role in assessing their child's development and volunteering in the classroom.  We have secret Facebook pages for each classrooms.  Here teachers post photos of children throughout the day, and parents can see what activities their children have been working on.

We look forward to meeting you!
