The Preschool Centers
The Preschool Center in Hyde Park is at 5467 S. University Avenue, in our agency headquarters building. It serves children ages 2 through 5. It is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), received the state’s highest designation of quality, and offers a well-rounded curriculum of learning and play, focused on all areas of child development. The Hyde Park center has offered a rich early childhood education experience since 1963.
The Preschool Center in Englewood is at 7000 S. Parnell Avenue, in a residential building owned and managed by VLV Transformation Housing. It serves children ages 3 through 5. The Englewood center is part of both Head Start and the Chicago Public Schools Community Partnership Program. Its curriculum is modeled after that of our Hyde Park center, and we will apply for NAEYC accreditation.
