Welcome

Welcome to your Lisle KinderCare on Eisenhower Lane, just off of Maple Ave. We have an impressive group of teachers with a combined experience of over 150 years. We serve Naperville 203 as well as Lisle 202 school districts. As a center we support cooperative play; use whole and small group activities to model sharing, communication and cooperation. Our Preschool and Prekindergarten programs prepare children to reason and analyze by using their senses to explore materials, create opportunities to ask and answer open ended questions, experiment with spatial relationships, problem solve and make independent choices. Our goal is to do all we can to help children learn and succeed. We would love to share our Nationally Accredited center with you. Please contact us at any time!

Accreditation

Many of our child care centers are accredited by national organizations that require us to meet rigorous early childhood education standards and guidelines for high-quality care and education. Programs that are accredited have demonstrated their commitment to go beyond the state’s minimum licensing requirements to meet and maintain these high standards of quality.

Our Programs

Infant Programs (6 weeks - 1 year)

Babies grow and learn every day. Our goal is to provide a safe and nurturing "home away from home" where babies can explore and make new discoveries. We know that learning through play is extremely valuable at this age and our Early Foundations® Infant program is designed to give babies the skills that will serve as the building blocks for a lifetime of learning.

Toddler Programs (1 – 2 Years)

As toddlers develop friendships, self-esteem, and curiosity, our Early Foundations® Toddler program will help them explore their world in a safe and nurturing environment. Our unique curriculum is based on the philosophy that children learn best through experiences. So each day is filled with fun activities that excite and develop toddlers, giving them the comfort and confidence to speak those first few important words, as well as make their first friends.

Discovery Preschool Programs (2 – 3 Years)

At this age, children are making new discoveries daily. And as two-year olds begin to exert their independence, our Early Foundations® Discovery Preschool program is prepared to open their eyes to a world of learning, sharing, and exploring. Our holistic approach in the classroom engages young minds with a blend of music, art, and movement, as well as the early education fundamentals they'll need as they continue on to preschool.

Preschool Programs (3 – 4 Years)

As preschoolers gain more self-esteem, they may feel ready to take on the world. Our Early Foundations® Preschool program enhances that confidence by providing activities to help children become problem solvers and lifelong learners. Through independent exploration, structured activities, and hands-on learning, children will work on early literacy, math, science, and social studies concepts. A healthy dose of running, jumping, and dancing keeps them active too.

Prekindergarten Programs (4 – 5 Years)

Prekindergartners are preparing for the adventure of a lifetime – school. And our Early Foundations Prekindergarten® program is designed to get them ready by teaching letters and words, math concepts, and valuable social skills. With small group instruction, independent play in an organized atmosphere, and whole-group activities, children will have all the right skills to hop, skip, and jump right into kindergarten.

Before- & After-School Programs (5 – 12 Years)

Even after school's out for the day, children need to be engaged in a comfortable, yet stimulating environment. That's where our Catch the Wave® program comes in. This innovative before – and after-school program allows school-age children to balance learning and fun through a variety of experiences. From homework help to fun physical activities, our program is designed so that everyone goes home happy.

Learning Adventures - Enrichment Program

Cooking

The Cooking Adventures program gives children opportunities to participate in fun, developmentally appropriate cooking experiences. They will learn about recipes, ingredients, cooking vocabulary, and the importance of a healthy diet. The curriculum includes lessons on picnics, pizza, and heart-healthy meals.

Music

Ongoing research proves that early exposure to music helps children think, reason, create, and express themselves. Children will laugh and learn about rhythm, vocal melodies, and a variety of musical genres and instruments, which can lower stress and advance memory. Learning never sounded so good.

Phonics & Reading Adventures

Set your child up for advanced success with literacy through phonics, the study of letters and sounds. Reader books, games, and activity cards help your child understand the basics of vowels and blending syllables, giving him confidence and command of language.

Health and Safety

Safety is our number one priority here. Our entry has a key pad that requires a code for entrance into our center. This code is changed twice a year or more if needed. We also have a secured fenced-in outside play area for where the children can play protected. As the parents or guardians enter, we have a sign-in and out book in the entry way that families are required to fill out at drop off and pick up. To ensure that the proper authorized people are picking up the children by verifying their photo ID's and comparing them to the paperwork that was submitted. In our classrooms we keep Child Supervision Records where the teacher checks attendance every half hour and center management reviews a minimum of three times a day. We clean our classrooms and main center areas daily and sanitize the center nightly, following all state and company health and safety guidelines to ensure a safe and healthy environment for all the children in our care. Our staff has current CPR/First Aid certifications, and with our own Health and Safety Coordinator on the premises full-time, attention to detail in the areas of cleanliness and safety for children of all ages is not just a promise- it’s a guarantee! We also have a Health Nurse who visits our center on a monthly basis and continues to train our teachers on specific health issues.

At KinderCare, what families say about us means a lot. Read below some of the great experiences our families have had with us.

Share Your Story
If you have a story about your experience at KinderCare, please share your story with us.

I unexpectedly found myself this past November looking for daycare for my grandchildren. It had been a long time since I had looked into Preschool and daycare settings and I was at a loss as where to start. I called my local KinderCare and spoke to the director who took a great deal of time answering my questions and relieving my anxiety about placing my very young grandchildren in daycare. The director stayed in contact with me while I investigated all my options and then welcomed us all warmly into her center. I continue to be amazed at the care and concern expressed by all the staff at this center, even those who do not directly work with my grandchildren. Each and every person I have encountered has shown such kindness to me and my grandchildren that I no longer worry about them while they are at KinderCare. My grandchildren are very happy and well cared for and I could not be happier. Thank you to all the KinderCare staff for providing a safe, loving and supportive learning environment for my grandchildren. You have been a blessing in my life and the lives of my grandchildren.

- Grandparent

The KinderCare teachers and staff have become part of our “family” whom we trust and rely on to help our daughter grow and develop. From the directors down to the wonderfully energetic and patient teachers, you have the sense that there are strong lines of communication between the entire team. That strong team structure translates to an incredibly nurturing environment. Our daughter has been enrolled since she was three months old and we have seen her grow and develop cognitively, physically and socially in ways we could have never achieved alone. She genuinely loves her teachers and friends, and we see her blossoming in countless ways. We have also been impressed with the way staff manages to treat each individual child to their needs. When our daughter was in the infant room, she had some special needs with both her diet and some daily activities to help stretch and strengthen certain muscles in her back and the staff happily worked with us to make sure her care from home to KinderCare and back was as seamless as possible. We are so grateful and appreciative of the love and care they have provided. When I was making the decision for my daughter’s care, I visited six centers in our area and the Lisle KinderCare was heads above the rest. Clean, innovative, backed by sound educational and safety principals and practices and very service-orientated. I have recommended this center to many friends and to anyone who is looking for a safe, clean, engaging environment for your child.

- Parents

We have had a wonderful experience with KinderCare in Lisle. I have a three year old daughter that had never been in a daycare or preschool situation, I was a stay at home mom. When my life changed and I needed daycare the staff at KinderCare made things easy for me. My daughter absolutely loves it, and if she is home a couple of days can't quit asking when she gets to go back. I really can't say enough good things about them.
