Voted the best day care center in Park Ridge as well as achieved the Silver Circle of Quality through ExceleRate Illinois! This shows that your child's program has met specific standards of quality and is helping to give your child a great start in learning and in life.

For this crucial time in your child's brain development, our classes offer many experiences in skill development, music, social development and building social relationships with teachers and other children in addition to learning how to regulate emotions and negotiating the play situation. Our school is pursuing the Silver Level in the ExcelleRate Illinois Program. We have a nurse that visits regularly to ensure that we are following good health and safety practices.  We have regular monthly fire drills and occasional tornado and earthquake drills.  Our staff is CPR and First Aid certified by the American Red Cross.

We have a Crisis Management Policy for emergencies, and ours is a secure facility with passcodes only parents know.  We partner with families to provide the best care for the children with an Open Door Polcy. Our school has completely renovated the bathrooms and replaced the ceiling and lighting in the hallway. The rooms were freshly paintied and it all looks wonderful.

River Trails Nature Center Visits Sugar Plum
A visit from a naturalist gave the children first-hand knowledge about snakes and other animals. Feeling the skins and shells helped them understand the different textures that make up the wide variety of animal coverings. Books helped to enhance the experience.
Girls enjoy playing with the blocks, too. It gives them a sense of power to be able to build something they can play with.

Water Play is fun. It enables children to be creative and to learn about water animals and the sensory feeling of the water. Sharing with friends is also an enjoyable experience. Socializing and learning how to negotiate sharing is very important.

In case of severe snow conditions listen to the radio or call the school. We will try to email everyone.
