All Day Care & Preschool

All Day Care with Preschool

Jr. Kid’s Connection is more than daycare! Jr. Kid’s Connection includes dedicated classroom time for preschool curriculum. Children who are three, four, or five years old will enjoy three hours of preschool specific curriculum included in their daily activities. Perfect for working parents, any child who missed the Kindergarten cut-off date, or children who are ready for a longer day of enrichment activities. 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 6:30am 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 two 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.”
