Girl playing on Sensory Path

Sensory Path

We encourage children to grow through discovery and exploration. As they walk, hop, and skip along the Sensory Path down our main hallway, children build cognitive and motor skills – and have fun!

Indoor Playrooms

Children learn best through play – so that’s how we teach! Teachers at JCYS Lincoln Square Ravenswood prompt children to explore the natural world and experience the joy of active play. In bad weather, the fun comes inside to our spacious indoor playrooms.

Music

Music helps children learn numbers, letters, routines, and other crucial early skills. Our teachers introduce children to the joy of music and movement through song and dance.
