Educare West DuPage: Redefining Early Childhood Education and Fostering Bright Futures
Educare West DuPage goes beyond traditional daycare to elevate early childhood education and empower West Chicago families. Located adjacent to Pioneer Park in West Chicago, Educare West DuPage is part of a national network, one of only two Educare schools in Illinois, and the only Educare school in a suburban location in the country, which makes it truly one of a kind. Here’s how their unique approach sets them apart:
- Highly Qualified Educational Team: Unlike traditional daycares, Educare West DuPage boasts a team of three highly qualified educators for each classroom: Lead Teacher, Teacher Assistant, and Teacher Aide. These professionals receive specialized training in early childhood development, ensuring that children receive the best start to their educational journey.
- Dual-Language Curriculum: Educare West DuPage embraces diversity and offers a two-way dual-language curriculum to serve children with the greatest need. Children have the unique opportunity to learn in both English and another language, preparing them for a more inclusive and globalized world.
- Comprehensive Family Engagement: The organization understands the vital role of family engagement in a child's development. Alongside their educational programs, Educare West DuPage offers comprehensive family engagement services, including access to healthcare, mental health services, parenting resources, and community engagement programs.
The comprehensive early learning program goes above and beyond by nurturing the holistic development of children from six weeks to five years old. However, the success of the early childhood education model used by Educare West DuPage can only be accomplished through the following.
