    Kid's Work
    “It’s a good sign when your child is having so much fun that he doesn’t want to leave his daycare at the end of the day. Not only is Kids’ Work fun, it’s a place where kids can be themselves. The providers respect the children and teach them to respect each other, which creates a safe, happy environment where they can all learn from each other. I can’t thank Kids’ Work enough for all they do!”

    “A perfect balance - Kids’ Work is the perfect balance of play, learning, and love. Lynda and Sarah respond to each child’s individual needs and every child feels safe, loved, and important. They foster an environment of respect and instill self-confidence in each and every child. They encourage creativity and praise imagination – and perhaps most importantly – kids have fun! Any parent who has the opportunity to send their child to Kids’ Work can feel confident that they are receiving the very best care.”

    "I have only wonderful things to say about Kids Work and we are so glad we decided to send our daughter there this past Sept when she turned 2. We were worried about how she'd adjust to daycare (after being at home her first two years), but after the first couple of weeks, she absolutely loves going to school everyday and gets so excited to walk out the door every morning. I can tell that the teachers genuinely care for the children, and the directors are so caring and helpful as well. I always look forward to receiving my daily updates and seeing pictures of my daughter engaging in the activities for the day. The staff is incredibly responsive if you have a question or request, and the assistant director, Dani, even proactively followed up with additional information for me after I inquired about speech therapy with one of the teachers. I also feel like the student teacher ratio is a bit lower than usual with 14 kids to 3 teachers in a class for 2-3 year olds. Finally, I love their long hours... they are open 7am-6:30pm. Although she never stays the entire time, it's always helpful on the rare occasion we need to drop off earlier or pick up later."

    "My daughter has been attending Kids' Work on a part-time basis since September 2014. She looks forward to each day she spends there. Due to the attentive and caring atmosphere created by Sierra's staff, she has blossomed not only in her academic skill set, but also has seen tremendous growth in her interactions with others her age. She will be well-prepared and confident when she enters kindergarten next year; Kids' Work has definitely played a pivotal role in her development. I highly recommend their curriculum to all parents seeking a safe, positive & effective learning environment for their children. Sincerely, Brad S. Bahn Chicago, IL"

    "As 2 working parents we agonized about the decision about what to do with our son after he was born. Nanny share? Au pair? Daycare? Ultimately we chose Kids work daycare and we have been very happy with our choice. If you choose daycare you will have rough spots--your kid will get sick a lot in that first year. But ultimately, after 2 years and 3 different classrooms at Kids Work (infant, 1 year old and toddler), we feel we made the right decision in childcare. The overwhelming positives of choosing Kids Work are the following: 1. First and foremost we've always felt like the staff in every one of our son's classrooms truly cared about him. As a parent that means so much to you, feeling like the staff holds your baby enough and hugs him. Then as he gets older teaches him and plays with him. They have a real connection that goes beyond a job that feels like they really love my son. 2. They teach your children. I think this is a huge advantage of a professional daycare like Kids Work over a home day care or nanny. At 2 years old our son can count, sing songs, and does art projects and this is all things he's learned almost exclusively at Kids Work. We feel when it comes to Kindergarten and first grade our son will enter with leg up having already learned so much starting so early at Kids Work. 3. The social interaction is good at Kids Work with both teachers and other children. We've gotten our son involved in classes outside of Kids Work like soccer or swimming and we can't help but notice how much better our son is at following an adult's instructions than other kids that haven't been in daycare. I don't think this is because our son is exceptional, I think it's because he's had practice. Overall I would feel confident telling anybody and everybody I know that I wholeheartedly endorse Kids Work. They're professional, responsible and most importantly they care about the children and show them the love they need. We're moving soon and if we could we'd take Kids Work with us to our new home because we've been so happy with how they've treated our son."

    “What an incredible experience Kids’ Work Chicago is for both of our children! Our oldest son, who is almost three, has been at Kids’ Work since it first opened. Our other son is seven months old and has been there four months. Both of our children immediately adjusted and are always happy to go to Kids’ Work. As full-time working parents, we are so very lucky to have found such a wonderful place for our children to attend, where the level of care is outstanding and the staff is so caring and trusting. Our children are definitely flourishing in such a fun learning environment! I truly feel like our children are excelling in their development by being a part of the Kids’ Work family!”

    "I cannot say enough good things about this daycare center! My child is in one of the infant classrooms and is very well cared for... dare I even say loved! We started daycare for our son at 3 months of age and I have never had a worry or concern when leaving him with his teachers. I honestly have never felt as good about leaving my child in someone else's care as I do when I leave him at Kids' Work. We were originally going to have a nanny, just as we had for our older daughter; things fell through with our candidate and I needed to head back to work... enter the one spot in the infant room open at Kids' Work. After a tour I was smitten. This place has completely changed my mindset about daycare. The 1:1 attention is still there and you will watch your child flourish under amazing teachers. We've been with Kids' Work almost 3 months now (yes a fairly short time) BUT I cannot say enough good things. The teachers are amazing; planning, playing, and simply caring for these little ones. They are super attentive and make sure each child is receiving individualized care. They ask questions and care about the answers to make sure your child is happy - healthy - and growing! These ladies keep everything CLEAN and follow every rule or direction for your child to the T. The school is hyper clean, shoes off when you enter, booties on for the infant rooms, wash hand, wash baby's hands... it's fantastic!! The directors are ever present if a question or issue ever pops up and are overall amazing. We love it here!!"

    "We couldn't be happier with the teachers, food, and programming. Our little one has been here since infancy, so we have experienced several different classrooms and have always had a wonderful experience. The teachers are very caring and creative and the kids have days that are full of play and learning opportunities. There is yoga, music, gross motor play time, and lots of art and sensory exploration. The peace of mind that we have knowing our kid is so well taken care of, engaged, and happy counts for a lot."

    "Both our children, now ages 2 and 4, went to Kids Work Too and loved it. We had to move out to the suburbs but were extremely sad to leave. Frankly, now that we have a comparison of our new suburb place to KW2, we realize how great it really was! Loved the teachers, loved what the kids were learning. Highly recommend."
