School Notes

  • We would like to invite you to stop in to see our center and meet our staff. We have been at this location since 1990 serving families in Orland Park, Homer Glen, and Lockport. We take great pride in our center and the longevity of many of our staff members. We care for children ages 6 weeks - 12 years. Educational programs are available at each level including a kindergarten program and before and after school care.
  • We strive to make our center both a safe and healthy place to be. Our front entryway is password protected by a keypad. Our age appropriate fenced in playgrounds offer a safe environment for your child to play outside. We serve two well balanced meals and a snack each day, all of which are prepared on the premises. Our staff are trained and certified in First Aid and CPR.
