Here at JCYS Northwest Family Center in Buffalo Grove, our focus is family. We welcome every child to learn through play, build confidence, explore the world around them, develop compassion with peers, and embrace joy as they form life-long friendships. Monthly center events and drop-in opportunities invite parents, grandparents, and friends to be an important part of our center. Dedicated teachers provide a warm, nurturing, and engaging space to learn and grow. Teachers are enthusiastic about working in Early Childhood and their creativity shines through when they facilitate activities that pique child interest and spark participation. Our beautiful facility features a dance studio, full-size gym, outdoor playground, and a sunlit indoor atrium where students, families, and teachers come together as a community to celebrate program milestones and Jewish holidays.

Our programming is based on Creative Curriculum, a nationally normed, research-based preschool curriculum aligned with Illinois Early Learning Standards. Creative Curriculum emphasizes learning through exploration and discovery. Teachers communicate responsively and build individual supportive relationships by encouraging healthy emotional expression in each child. Children build competence and trust through developmentally appropriate challenges and constructive, purposeful play. All our activities are designed to foster children’s social and emotional skills, physical development, and academic potential.
