Toddler Care and Preschool

Our toddler and preschool classrooms are full of energy, laughter, and learning! Our play-based, Reggio-inspired approach provides students with a nurturing environment, giving each child the opportunity to build strong connections with teachers and friends while developing physical, social, emotional, and pre-academic skills. JCYS Wicker Park offers two dedicated play spaces with interactive large loose parts equipment. One for older students and one for our younger students, ages 2 and under.

Food for students is catered by Food2You, a local Logan Square caterer. Half-day students receive a morning snack and lunch; full-day students receive a morning snack, lunch, and an afternoon snack. Full-day students have nap/rest time from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm.
