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, multiple age-appropriate activities are provided at once to allow for positive decision making.  Curriculum is not just for preschool, we have curriculum, observations, assessments and activities in every classroom.  Through our casual approach we strive to be a bridge between home and school.  We want our children to feel as though or center is 'Just Like Home'.

Classrooms

We are licensed to care for 90 children from 6 weeks through 12 years.  Our rooms include:

  • Infant Room
  • Toddler Room
  • Junior Preschool Room:  Two Year Olds
  • Preschool/Pre-K Room:  Three & Four Year Olds
  • School Age Room

 

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, and another parent page just for families.  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!
