Welcome to the Elmhurst KinderCare. As a NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children) accredited center and a leader in the field of Early Childhood Education, it is our honor to be a part of your child's development. We want to give you peace of mind in knowing you have made the right decision by looking into our center. We have a passion for teaching and nurturing children, that leads our teachers to develop the whole child-socially, emotionally, physically, and intellectually. We are excited to have you visit our learning center so you can see first hand we are so much more than just a daycare. We are a place your child can explore, discover, and learn about the world surrounding them. They will do so with confidence, and work alongside a team of early childhood experts who can turn every moment into a positive learning experience.
Teachers & Staff
The teachers and staff at the Elmhurst KinderCare are passionate about educating and nurturing children. Our teachers have an average tenure of five to 10 years at our center. (We have three staff members with 19 plus years with KinderCare) The majority of our teachers have their Bachelor's Degree or Associate's Degree in Early Childhood Education, or a Childhood Development Associates Credential. The Elmhurst KinderCare team strives for excellence through continuing education from bi-annual company professional development trainings to seeking additional college courses or seminars in the education field. At the end of the day, the true key to our teachers' success is their passion for teaching and their love of learning.
Health & Safety
At the Elmhurst KinderCare Learning Center, your child's safety is one of our top priorities. Not only are all of our outside perimeter doors locked to ensure security, but all of our playgrounds are fenced with locked gates as well. In addition, we have a security door in to the classrooms. The door has a coded entry where only authorized family members will have a code to enter. Otherwise a door bell is available to visitors who will be greeted by a Center staff member. At the Elmhurst KinderCare we have a Health and Safety Coordinator on site as well. Ms. Jenny’s role includes conducting monthly fire and tornado drills, ensuring that all staff’s first aid and CPR certificates are up to date, and maintaining high cleanliness standards.
