One Hope United Des Plaines Child Development Center

9375 Church St., Des Plaines, IL

Costimate: $248/wk

Des Plaines Child Development Center has provided the highest quality care and education that parents have trusted for more than 32 years - the first 30 as a model employer sponsored day care for Lutheran General Hospital.

Our facility has 25,000 sq. ft. of program space with spacious, welcoming and stimulating classrooms, a children's library and a parent and teacher resource library. It has a full size gymnasium and a 40,000 sq. ft. tree lined playground with a tricycle/walking path.

The program has a team-management philosophy, with each of the ten classroom leaders participating in educational discussions and decision making. Teachers are loving, tenured, experienced professionals dedicated to strengthening families by providing the best individualized care and education to their children.

Teachers get to know each child through written child observations, and through the use of assessment tools to assist them in learning about the child's temperament, and progress in language, cognitive, social emotional, physical development. Parents are invited to use the temperament and developmental scales the teachers use. Each classroom's curriculum is planned based on the teaching teams' knowledge of the children of the classroom.

Formal parent teacher conferences are conducted at least twice a year. A Parent Advisory Council, representing all age groups, discusses educational program offerings, helps plan action plans based on the yearly OHU consumer satisfaction survey and the program evaluation survey of the NAEYC, and assists in communicating with other parents. They also help plan center events, including Parent Education sessions, seasonal celebrations and a Teacher Appreciation Day.

Our programs include yoga classes (culminating in a yoga presentation at Kindergarten Graduation), music and creative movement, and clay classes. They are available to infants through school age children, and we also offer an 11 week summer camp and holiday care camp.
