Lutheran Day Nursery Of Chicago

  • Since 1911, Lutheran Day has provided childcare services and early childhood education.
  • We are licensed by the State of Illinois Department of Human Services and the city of Chicago.
  • Our program is designed to provide a variety of key experiences for children while in our care.
  • We are a Christian Preschool. Therefore, Christian education is a daily part of our program in the classroom.
  • We aim to teach the children about God's love, His gift of Jesus Christ, and that we can know Jesus and learn to live like Him.
  • Christian Education activities include stories, drama, art, music, prayer, etc.
  • In addition to the classroom activities, the children participate in informal praise times twice a week throughout the year and more formal services during the Christmas and Easter seasons led by visiting Pastors.
  • These times last about 20 minutes and are child oriented.
  • Our philosophy is that children learn best by being active participants.
  • Our program allows children to choose meaningful, interesting activities during a part of each day.
  • Classrooms are arranged by interest centers including a block area, dramatic play, sensory tables, an art center, a writing center, a science center and a listening center.
  • The teachers interact with the children individually or in small groups, facilitating each child's exploration, problem solving and thinking abilities.
  • We provide experiences that promote literacy and math competency. We believe that children develop through their play and that a child-centered environment stimulates children's social, emotional, physical and intellectual development.
