All parents want the best for their children. Why then do so many settle for less than the best when it comes to childcare? Usually parents simply aren't aware of all the choices available for their children.
Little Kids on the Block actively works with parents to determine the right environment for each child. Many parents are unaware of the drawbacks of communal daycare center environments. Children in daycare are typically not school age children. They do not necessarily belong in an environment modeled after the school system. They demand far more one-on-one attention and more love than school aged children as well.
Family specialists recommend a nurturing family environment for your child. In this type of environment, your child will not only learn the skills necessary for future success, but will also develop as a complete person.
This is where Little Kids on the Block comes in. Our family daycare home incorporates early childhood practices in teaching the whole child to develop cognitively, socially, emotionally, and physically. Children here enjoy a variety of structured and free play activities with developmentally appropriate practices at the core of our curriculum. We study basic concepts and learn to apply abstract ideas. In addition, our curriculum is based on seasonal and interesting themes that encompass the cognitive and affective domains of learning. Our children learn to respect themselves, each other, their cultures and beliefs. Our children also learn about such traditional values as American history and patriotism. Since its inception and State of Illinois licensing in 1989, Little Kids on the Block has been providing the best possible childcare for the children of Wheaton, Winfield, Glen Ellyn, Lombard, and all of DuPage County. We have been nationally accredited by the National Association for Family Child Care (NAFCC) since 1995. Of all NAFCC accredited providers in Wheaton, we were the first.
In business for over 25 years, we are a pioneer in early childhood care, learning and development. Today we continue to raise the bar in childcare by providing electronic security for your children. We have engaged actively with the police and fire department to ensure the safety and well being of our children. We promise that at our daycare, your child will be in a clean, safe, and secure environment. This guarantee allows you to go about your daily lives in peace, knowing that your child is in the best hands available. Upon graduation from Little Kids on the Block, children are prepared to meet life's challenges with confidence - and they should be. After all, they have received the best early childhood care and education possible. Most of our families stay in touch with what's going on ''On the Block'' even after leaving. In fact, while their children have outgrown LKB, they continue referring other parents to the daycare. Both child and parent build a special relationship with LKB that can only come from one-on-one attention, a nurturing environment, and a genuine love for children.
