Mission of Birth to 3 Program

  • Create an educational culture where each student and family thrives Academically, Physically, Socially and Emotionally.
    Our goal is to positively impact child development and nurture healthy parent-child relationships during the critical early years.

Goals of Early Learning Center (ELC)

  • The goal of the West Chicago Early Childhood program is to offer learning opportunities that are best for all children, ages birth to five.

    Those learning opportunities will include:

    The development of partnership with families.

    An environment that recognizes young children’s natural curiosity and facilitates learning through active play.

    Activities that promote confidence, problem-solving, risk-taking and cooperation.

    Therefore, in our program one will see early childhood educators facilitating children of all abilities who are actively engaged in meaningful, hands-on play experiences that reflect each child’s needs, interests, culture and life experiences.
