Kiddy Kare I


At Kiddy Kare I, our mission is to serve the community by offering a stimulating and nurturing learning environment for young children. Early childhood education is the foundation for future education. We continue to strive to provide the children in our community with the highest quality of education and childcare.


Our school offers a variety of early learning programs to promote school readiness. We also collaborate with several outside agencies to ensure that our children have the skills they need to become productive citizens and life learners. Our philosophy is to acknowledge that you, the parents, are the primary educator of their child. It is our intention to partner with you in a way that will allow your child to grow at his/her individual rate. We also strive to have open communication with parents to build a bridge from home to school. We offer a highly qualified and experienced teaching staff. Our teachers provide an enriching caring and loving learning environment where children feel safe and secure.

Programs Include:

  • Outdoor playground activities and nature walks
  • Breakfast (6am-9am), hot lunch, and afternoon snack
  • Certified and trained teachers and staff (including criminal and background checks)
    Many also have CPR and First Aid Training
  • Our teacher to student ratios are kept small to allow for individual attention

Our school is licensed by the City of Chicago, the State of Illinois, and the Department of Children Family Services.
