The JCYS George W. Lutz Family Center in Highland Park welcomes children and families to a joyful, play-based learning environment where every child receives tailored instruction and individual care. We use an emergent curriculum, meaning that lesson plans are based on children’s interests and curiosity – no two classrooms are the same! Each child has the opportunity to explore his or her unique talents and develop an independent, exploratory approach to learning that lasts for life. We serve children by supporting the whole family – teachers and staff at JCYS Highland Park are committed to engaging parents in the life and community of the center.
Thanks to a low child-to-teacher ratio, children at JCYS Highland Park form personal relationships with teachers and caregivers. Ferdinand, the Child and Family Development Specialist at JCYS Highland Park, works one-on-one with children, parents, and teachers to ensure every child receives the appropriate support and care. Many teachers have master’s degrees and all have taken professional coursework relevant to child development. To make sure every child stays safe at JCYS, staff members are certified in CPR and First Aid, and monthly professional development meetings ensure that all staff members are fully up to date on the latest in early childhood education and care.
