Early Learning Village

Early Learning Village is a warm and nurturing early learning environment that focuses on supporting the growth of each child to his/her fullest potential. We use the Illinois Birth to Three Program Standards and the Illinois Early Learning Standards (3-5 year olds) as a guideline for our program/curriculum development.

The programs at Early Learning Village are created from a solid understanding of child development and promote the growth of the whole child: physically, cognitively, socially, emotionally and spiritually. The Early Learning Village admits students of any race, color, national or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.

All classes meet Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9-11:30am, with an extended program (ELV+) on Wednesdays for our preschoolers.

Customize your schedule by choosing any or ALL available days. We desire to partner with you, the families, to generate in your child a love of learning, a desire to explore confidently, and a joy of life and others.

    ELV Toddler Program

    The programs at the Early Learning Village are created from a solid understanding of child development and promote the growth of the whole child: physically, cognitively, socially, emotionally, and spiritually. We believe children learn best when their curiosity is engaged in multi-sensory play experiences. Our staff is dedicated to cultivating a nurturing environment and to model Christ-like character.

    We want to give you a morning out to refresh, rejuvenate and recharge yourself while your child is engaged by age appropriate lessons and experiences. Activities promote developmental growth and learning and include language development, sensory, large and small motor, science, art, music, and more. Nurturing teachers encourage healthy separation and foster an environment which promotes cooperative play and social development with peers. 


    Customize your schedule by choosing any or ALL available days each month (M-W-F from 9-11:30am).
