Welcome Meet the Team »

Welcome to the La Grange Avenue KinderCare! We can't wait to share with you and your child all the wonderful and exciting activities happening at the Center. Your child will have the opportunity to explore their surroundings and learn through hands on experiences. Our KinderCare features classroom monitors in the main lobby where you can observe your child learning and interacting with their friends. What a great feeling to be able to head off to work and see first hand that your child is happy and having fun. Our KinderCare features separate classrooms for each age group from infants through school age. Each classroom is print rich and staff members work at helping each child recognize and print letters and numbers as age permits. We understand that each and every child is unique when it comes to learning. Some children are visual, auditory, kinesthetic or a combination of learners. We believe in developing the "Whole Child". We extend an open invitation to join our La Grange Avenue KinderCare family. - Suzie Wilkerson, Center Director

Our daughter went to KinderCare from the time she was two years old and continued through Private Kindergarten. These were the most formative years of her life and the foundation for her educational growth. We could not have been happier or more pleased with the experience from the center. When she finally left, it was like leaving family behind. The staff at this center remains consistent; our daughter had the same people caring for her year after year. The Center Director, Suzie, runs a fantastic place. I have never regretted having to leave our daughter at the center. I knew she was in capable, caring and, above all else, loving hands. She excelled in the extra activities offered, such as Spanish and cooking. The Private Kindergarten was worth more than any money we did or could have paid. Our daughter started first grade leagues beyond the other children due to the rigorous and advanced curriculum that KinderCare offered. Choosing this center was one of the best decisions we have made for our daughter. I am so thankful to the staff and teachers for their consistent love and support to the children and families who make this a "second home" during the week. - Holley T., Parent
