Teachers plan activities that allow children to explore, inquire, play, and discover while following the Illinois Early Learning Standards, and incorporating the Jolly Phonics Program, to help children meet goals for their age. Daily activities may include art projects, large motor skill development, trips to local businesses and libraries, reading, life skills, writing, cooking, socializing, and games. Children must be toilet-trained.
Program is available from 6:15am to 6:15pm, Monday through Friday. A hot breakfast, lunch, and snack included. Parents may choose from a full-time or part-time program, with children attending one to five days per week.
“I have had 3 children go through the program and can’t say enough good things about the staff and program. The other 2 were fully prepared for kindergarten, and I know my 3rd will be as well. The staff has met their needs academically and more importantly socially.I recommend it to anyone that will listen.”
