Hands on learning every day in every way!

a child playingWe believe that children learn through play! Engaging monthly and weekly thematically based learning activities are explored each day to give children a sense of the world in which they live. Our Curriculum models for Infants through 6 year old children is research based and aligned to the Illinois Early Learning Standards.

Our discovery based learning philosophy encourages children to problem solve and interact with their peers in ways that develop confidence, critical thinking skills and important social competencies. Special emphasis is placed on oral language development and literacy through story reading, storytelling and fun songs that explore rhymes, rhythms and routines!

STEM activities (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) are explored through cross-contextual learning experiences and are based in cooking, nature explorations and using recycled resources.

Field Trips, Yoga, Music and Creative Movement classes, compliment our learning themes and connect to daily experiences, thus building a strong foundation for primary school success!

Web Based Camera System

Never miss a moment and Never miss them too much!

We know that heading off to work and leaving your little one each day can be really tough! We help ease the separation anxiety often experienced by parents as they transition their child into a child care setting by providing web cameras that provide Moms, Dads and even grandparents…..with visual access to the child throughout the school day!

Take a peek while they sleep, or see if they’re eating their peas…

We’re not perfect, but we’re comfortable enough to let you watch! So go ahead, watch them grow and learn! We know how precious the moments are and we don’t want you to miss a single one!

Cloud Based Daily Communication App

Each parent receives an electronic daily report that details your child’s feedings, changes, activities and personal supply needs.

The reports is directly emailed to you via our amazing app!

I-Pods and I-Pads are incorporated into our classrooms to allow teachers to share pictures and videos throughout the day with you of your little one!

Parents can also log on to view their child’s activities in real time! Our system catalogs and creates a dynamic portfolio of your child’s daily experiences from their first day until their last day at A Child’s Space! The system also allows you to share your favorite photos and videos with a direct link to Facebook and other social media platforms.
