Children's House Early Education Experience:

Image of Chicago Child Care ProgramsAt the Children's House, our educational goals ensure that children learn in an atmosphere where growth, exploration and discovery are possible. Our curriculum is developmentally appropriate and teacher initiated. It is a distinct and proven experience for children ages 6 weeks through to 12 years. The curriculum allows for children's individuality, independence and decision making skills to be enhanced.

Monthly themes are included in the curriculum, as well as corresponding weekly units. Additionally, the children will learn of various cultures and customs throughout the U.S. and abroad.Our children are very busy through out the day. Each day, they participate in planning time, activity time, circle time, small-group time, outside time, clean-up time and reflective time.

Staff:

Our staff are trained to accept your child's curiosity as his or her own greatest resource for learning. In addition, our philosophy provides for the recognition of inappropriate behavior and the ability for all students to "self-correct" as opposed to the traditional time-out or redirection process.

It is our goal to offer an exceptionally well rounded educational program that provides your child with opportunities to achieve socially, intellectually, physically, psychologically, as well as emotionally. While we can never replace parents / guardians, it is our philosophy to provide an environment that is exemplary of "The Children's House Away From Home."
