Downers Grove, IL
Starting at $250/wk
I have been providing high-quality early childhood education and care in my DCFS licensed Downers Grove home for over 23 years. We have a bright and happy home with a fun mixed-age group of friends who would welcome your child. My husband, Rick, has been working full-time with me for 20 years and our daughter, Carly, has been a full-time assistant for 3 years after being part-time for years.
All three providers are DCFS back-ground checked, CPR/First Aid certified, Food Handler Certified, as well as current with our Tdap, MMR, and Covid-19 immunizations, and our water has passed lead testing, as required by DCFS.
Normally, we have just two infant spaces, even though our license permits four, so that we always have a set of arms available. Our program is play-based with a well-balanced variety of activities offered throughout the day. During the school year we offer daily structured preschool activities using the Funshine Express curriculum and Creative Curriculum. Our daily goal is to provide a safe and happy environment where your child can play, learn, and grow while feeling secure and loved so that they can develop self-esteem and skills.
Preschool and School-age children enjoy summers is filled with field trips to local parks, the DG library, Zoo, Wednesday morning movies, Arboretum, fun at the sprinkler parks as well as some good old-fashioned fun right in our own huge yard.
Both infant spaces are available at this time. The spaces were used by older children who had been enrolled for years and have moved on to full-day school this year. We also have two toddler/preschool space open and one school-age space.
