We know that choosing the right fit for your child's education and care is a difficult decision and that is why we are proud to say, you have come to the right place.  At our center we have an excellent reputation within the Carol Stream community and surrounding areas.  We have a family like atmosphere and host several functions including our current families and extended members.  We are NAEYC Accredited, hold 3 stars with the Quality Rating System of Illinois, and are in excellent standings with the Department of Children and Family Services.  We have close relationships with many community resources and agencies such as the Carol Stream Fire Department and Police Department, the Humanitarian Service Project, the public library, and the YWCA of DuPage.  It is a great pleasure to be a part of this community and stand out amongst other learning centers and preschools.  Currently we are enrolling in several rooms with limited space availability.

"When I started at this center I was extremely nervous leaving my child in the hands of what I called 'strangers.' But after a few short days, I felt as though the teachers were family and I had a peace of mind when leaving my child. I am now a mother of two and have both of my children in this center. There is no question that my children will grow up at this center and all of the teachers will continue to be our family." - Studinski Family, Mother
