A Child's Place Daycare Centers offers quality care for infants, toddlers, 2-year olds, 3-5's years olds, pre-kindergartners & School-Age.
Our Curriculum is centered on preparing your child for kindergarten beginning at an early age. Our curriculum is based on benchmarks from the Illinois Learning Standards. Our trained teachers and staff focus on developing your child's cognitive, social, and pysical skills through play. We keep track of your child's progress through child portfolios and assess their learning through out the year. Many parents are excited about their child's portfolios!
Beginning at the infant stage, we teach our infant friends simple sign language to enhance communication, give them lots of tummy time to strengthen muscles, and love them all day long! The learning doesn't stop here. Our infants are bringing home masterpieces of art, drawings, and paintings. We also help them learn how to crawl and walk! Details Here
As your child begins to grow into the toddler stages, we teach the children how to share, love, care, and be nice to our friends. This foundation sets the stage for future learning. They love to look at books, go outside, make art projects, play with sensory items, stack blocks and of course, knock them down! Toddlers are like sponges, soaking up everything around them. Teaching toddlers these skills are important to becoming a two year old. Details Here
Once transitioned into the two year old room, oh what fun they have! At this age, many more new skills are being developed and enhanced. This classroom focuses on fine motor skills, counting, colors, shapes, cutting, and much, much, more! Since they now have the foundation of sharing and caring, they are able to sit next to their friends and socialize among others. Their verbal skills are much stronger, they are much more independent, and before you know it they are going on the potty! This stage can be the most difficult, however, our trained group of teachers can get your child potty trained and when they turn 3 they are off to the Preschool Room! Details Here
In our Preschool Rooms, our dedicated teachers and staff have developed a well rounded curriculum incorporating letters, numbers, shapes, and colors into their program. Activities such as art projects, sensory projects, and circle time allow children the opportunity to learn through play. We also align ourselves with the Illinois Learning standards, and work with children to see them off into Kindergarten. Children at these stages work on identifying the letters of the alphabet, practice writing their names, use their creativity and imagination, practice phonics, run and play outside, develop good listening skills, learn simple Spanish, all while learning through play.

Pre-K & School Age Program:
Continuing on through our program as your child grows, he/she will be able to be challenged with higher levels of learning that continue to prepare the child for Kindergarten. Journal writing and sight words are a part of our program to introduce reading and identifying sounds. Enhanced literacy projects build on a child's knowledge that help to reinforce writing and reading skills. At this age, a solid thirst for learning is expressed through teacher guided activities and play. Finalizing our program with a Pre-K graduation ceremony at the end of the school year is an exciting time for your child.
All programs and curriculum offered are continuously integrated through out the planned activities from our quality teachers and staff. Our philosophy is simple, loving children all day long and preparing them for a lifetime of learning!
