School Notes

  • It can be incredibly nerve-wracking to raise a child without a manual...we scan the literature, read the books, attend birth classes and play groups, but every day greets us with the uncertainty of "Am I making the best choices for my child?" 

    Let us at Lincoln Park KinderCare help! Our staff has the National Association for the Education of Young Children seal of approval on their education, training, and ability to care for Little Ones (and their parents!). Questions and repartee about your outside of school endeavors are a part of our daily life. We love it. Let us take a load off your mind, find a kindred heart, share some tips and tricks, and join your "village".

    Child-rearing is a messy job. Let's do it with fingerpaints. 


    -Jenn Wisegarver, Center Director


    Lincoln Park KinderCare has been a part of the Lincoln Park community for over 10 years and has a staff with a combined total of over 200 years of experience in the early childhood education field.  We serve families from many neighborhoods including; Lincoln Park, Old Town, Wicker Park, Bucktown, Wrigleyville, Lakeview and Roscoe Village - just to name a few. We understand each family has different needs and would love the opportunity to show you how we can fit the needs of your family.
  • Our center has a security coded entry door with managers monitoring who is coming in and out of the building. We have a private playground surrounded by a six foot safety fence. All teachers and staff are CPR and First Aid certified.  We are on the Consumer Products Safety Commission's mailing list and e-mail alerts to parents as we receive them. We conduct name to face counts every 30 minutes and emergency evacuations on a monthly basis.  Our nurse consultant also visits us monthly, keeping us informed of seasonal illnesses and enforcing proper diapering and handwashing techniques. Our Health and Safety Coordinator completes classroom checks weekly to be sure that your little ones are in the safest environment possible!
