The Giving Tree Family of Schools currently has three locations in the Western Suburbs of Chicago. We feature a developmentally-based curriculum that provides quality early learning experiences in a progressive manner. We are proud to call ourselves an Early Learning Center that accepts infants as young as 6 weeks old through after-school children 12 years of age.
Enrolling your child in a quality early childhood program from a young age prepares them better for later school years and life experiences. Children learn through active participation with hands-on experience of exploration, discovery and learning.
Our schools feature a curriculum that is based on the individual developmental needs of the children in the classroom. A crafted teacher then prepares developmentally-appropriate lesson plans to encompass the needs of the classroom. Children are given daily opportunities to learn individually, in small groups, and as a whole group. They have opportunities to explore freely while supported and guided by teachers who are trained and have planned the learning environment. The children are promoted in their choices of activities and this helps them to make their own decisions and learn from their mistakes. We have at least one teacher who speaks Spanish at each school. (Tenemos al menos un profesor que habla espanol en cada escuela.)
Engaged activities are important, as children learn through planned experiences as well as spontaneous play and these learning opportunities are scheduled throughout the day. Your child will be encouraged to be self-sufficient, as self-help skills are intertwined throughout the curriculum.
We are a professionally operated, family owned Early Learning Center. You may schedule a tour by filling out this form, or by calling 630-469-7900
