We Know How to Make Learning Fun For Kids

The center’s management and team of educational providers believe that each child has strengths that can be enhanced through new learning opportunities. Based on that philosophy, the Center’s staff engages each child in activities that stimulates and encourages intellectual growth with an emphasis on socialization skills, gross motor and fine motor skills, language development, self-help and cognitive skills. The result is an environment that is warm, nurturing and fun as well as intellectually stimulating and socially comprehensive.

The Reason We’re Here

 

The children and families of the Quad Cities that we serve are the reason we are here. We owe our students a nuturing and stimulating environment which will allow them to reach their full potential.

Education & Administration

Thirty full and part time staff are responsible for the day to day operation of the child care facility. In addition to meeting the educational requirements for their positions, our classroom staff are also fingerprinted and screened by the state of Illinois to confirm they are free of a criminal background including charges of child abuse and neglect. Our caring and dedicated teaching staff have worked with us an average of eight years with the center’s director having been with the center over twenty years.

The center’s staff engages each child in activities that stimulates and encourages intellectual growth with an emphasis on socialization skills, gross motor and fine motor skills, language development, self-help and cognitive skills.
