St. Mark's Child Development Center

  • St. Mark's Child Development Center provides a loving and nurturing environment for children to grow and develop.
  • St. Mark’s began serving families with young children in 1992, providing day care in the Sunday School classrooms of the Church.
  • The program soon outgrew the church, so the congregation built a new building, our existing site in 1999.
  • We use a top quality curriculum, which is based on a developmental play approach.
  • Our program focuses on the total development of the child: physical, intellectual, social, emotional and spiritual.
  • It is a stimulating learning environment that prepares children for school and the bigger world.
  • Our trained and experienced teachers are nurturing, and they enjoy getting to know each child’s personality and meeting his or her individual needs.
  • Parents can feel confident that their children are safely and lovingly cared for during their stay at St. Mark’s.
  • A not-for-profit corporation, we are committed to your child's safety and are licensed by the Department of Children and Family Services, an agency of the State of Illinois.
  • Our facilities are available to members and non-members alike. As you are seeking to find a day care with preschool for your child, I hope you will consider St. Mark's.
