Eastside Educational Center provides care for children ages 6 weeks through 12 years. All of our classes, infant through school-age, follow a standards-based curriculum with the intent of providing the children a solid learning foundation.

In addition to our daycare classrooms, EEC offers children 3-5 years old a State-Funded Preschool for All program, whether it be the part-day program, or full day preschool. This program is courtesy of a grant provided by the Illinois State Board of Education, and has helped us offer FREE or Reduced preschool to the children of our area (80 children each year!) for the last three years.

We also offer a before-and-after-school program, featuring weekly Karate instruction, and excursions during school breaks. Our buses transport children to and from the public school each day, providing parents with peace of mind, knowing their children have been picked up after school, and also on early dismissals! Our before-and-after school program transitions into a Summer Camp full of karate and dance lessons, excursions, and many great learning experiences during the summer.

Eastside Educational Center accepts State Childcare Assistance. If you believe you may qualify (check rates at, please call and ask for Becky, all calls are confidential.

Please call us today for your tour of our facility. We know you'll love our programs as much as we do!
