Opened in Fall 2019, the 18,000 square foot, two-story Iris & Steven Podolsky Family Center is the largest building dedicated to early childhood education and young families in the Lincoln Square Ravenswood neighborhood.

Iris & Steven Podolsky Family Center

*For the 2020-21 school year, all JCYS Family Centers are open from 8:30 am until 4:30 pm. Full-day programs run from 8:30 am – 4:30 pm and half-day programs run from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm.*

Featuring seven classrooms and two large playrooms, and adjacent to local favorite Vogle Park, our newest family center offers full and half-day preschool, daycare, and summer day camps for children as young as 15 months.

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.
