Small place, but BIG hearts!
Highly recommend this place for the activities, curriculum and most of all, the teachers!

My twin girls (2s) have been there for over a year now and love this place. Teachers are very loving, caring and so warm to the kids in contrast to where they were before.

I moved them from my company's daycare in the suburbs, Bright Horizons, to a place in Chicago because of the long commute (from the city) and even more for the environment.

I vividly remember my girls crying in the morning when I dropped them off at Bright Horizons, yet the teachers continued to sit at their tables eating their cereal without coming over and consoling my girls. Also - I remember countless days when I went to pick them up and their shirts would be wet from crying or spills throughout the day.

They love the Early Learning Foundation and I have to bribe them (with a cookie) when I come to pick them up to get to leave and head to the car! A stark difference to where they were previously.

Highly Recommend
My twin girls started with ELF when they turned 2 and have been here almost a year. I took them out of Bright Horizons in the burbs in favor of a daycare closer to home. I was also not too pleased with the limited closeness and teacher/child interaction I observed with Bright Horizon. Being new to daycare (previously with nanny), it was a big change for my girls and they cried due to the separation anxiety for several weeks at Bright Horizons. There, the teachers did not do much consoling of my girls. I remember one day when my girls were crying in the morning and the 3 teacher just sat at the table eating their cereal. I would pick them up at the end of the day and their shirts would soaked from the tears. \r\rI notice how well and how quickly my girls acclimated to ELF. The teachers are so nurturing and caring. Hugs is the norm. I feel like there are a bunch of nannies with the level of care given here. It is always difficult getting my girls to leave at the end of the day. They usually don't want to leave. There is also such diversity here and cultural learning as well. Spanish is a plus! I find that my girls are thriving, learning and having fun. We recently got accepted into Montesori and made it to the top of the Avondale waiting list, but opted to keep them here. Need I say more? I cannot stress the importance of the teacher-child bond. The teachers here are great with kids and very loving!

Wonderful Daycare
My 3 1/2 year old started at this school in November of 2007. It was just incredible how she starting thriving so quickly. The children have Spanish lessons in the morning which the kids love. The teachers make it so much fun while they are learning. I decided to keep my child in this school for PreSchool, because she enjoyed it so much and have built a great base of friends as well. This school is a combination of academics and play along with a great group of teachers who are especially so nurturing and caring. I love it because there is such a diversity of children who attend this school, which has an international feel to it, so the kids are exposed to other cultures as well. They plan wonderful field trips to parks, plays and museums. I highly recommend this school.
