Teachers & Staff
The teachers at our Vernon Hills KinderCare are incredibly passionate about educating, nurturing, and helping children start on the right path through our outstanding Early Childhood Education programs. Each teacher walks in every morning to the children greeting them by running up to them and giving them BIG hugs. Our amazing curriculum is executed daily in a manner that helps children to learn and grow through academic, emotional, and social development.

There is always someone present in the front of the building to ensure top safety of the children. All of our outside doors are locked at all times.
