Infant Care at Lincoln Square Ravenswood

In the Infant Care program at JCYS Lincoln Square Ravenswood, our experienced, professional staff provide a warm and happy environment for our youngest children. With our low teacher-to-infant ratio, every infant receives individual attention and loving care, and our play-based curriculum encourages even the youngest children to learn and grow.

You’ll never miss a beat with daily reports on your baby’s sleep, feeding, and play schedule. Regular visits from a pediatric nurse consultant ensure your child stays healthy while providing valuable information and resources to parents and caretakers.

Holding Fee for Infant Care

Please read our Financial Policy for complete information on holding fees for JCYS Infant Care programs. Holding fees are non-refundable.

To reserve a slot in advance for infant care later in the year, JCYS requires a $1,000 per (4-week) month holding fee in addition to the regular registration fee. Without the holding fee, JCYS cannot guarantee a spot will be available when the time comes. The holding fee is applied exclusively towards the months before the child joins the program. It is independent of program tuition. A holding fee may be used for up to 8 weeks. If the infant is not in the infant program by that time, the family will have the option of either paying full tuition to continue to reserve the space or releasing it.

Infant Program Registration for the Following School Year
During regular, open registration, families may register to reserve a spot for their infant for the following preschool year, even if the infant is not ready to enter the program on the first day of the program. In the event that an infant is not ready to enter the program on the first day of the fall term, the family will begin paying the holding fee. They can hold a slot for 8 weeks (i.e., through October 13th, 2023, for the 2023-24 school year).
