At Children’s Creative Center we believe that a high quality early childhood program should first and foremost provide a safe and nurturing environment for children. Our program is aligned with the guidelines set forth by the Illinois Early Learning Standards.
Teachers have the role of facilitator in the classroom; encouraging each child to try a variety of activities and helping develop the necessary skills to be successful in school in the years to come. Children’s Creative Center monitors your child’s progress carefully and applies best practices to improve our teaching techniques and your child’s learning abilities. We encourage a highly productive partnership between teachers, director and parents.
We believe that communication between the teachers and parents is a vital part of providing a quality program and strengthens the learning process. We link parents to what their children are learning at school through daily activity reports, parent bulletin boards and open parent-teacher communications.
Our professional and experienced staff have obtained degrees in Early Childhood Education as required by the State Childcare Licensing division. The teachers directly assist in planning and implementing a developmentally appropriate curriculum for each age level. Teachers and assistants are required to continuously develop and update their teaching skills with outgoing educational programs. CCC staff is certified in CPR, First Aid, Childhood Illnesses and Food Service Sanitation. They are fingerprinted in compliance with DCFS, and background checks are conducted upon hiring.
