Our Parent Reviews
Sarah Cudnik, Owner & Executive Director
With a Master’s Degree in Elementary Education, and eight years of primary classroom teaching experience, Sarah has an extensive knowledge of early childhood curriculum and a wealth of creative ideas.
“I grew up in my Mom’s in-home daycare, the original Kids’ Work, and believe that children learn best when they are loved, supported, and provided with the opportunity to explore the world around them. Kids’ Work Chicago was born out of a wish to maintain my career as an educator, have a family, and spend as much time with my children as my mom spent with me.”
Lynda MacHaila, Owner
Lynda’s nurturing personality and hands-on approach towards learning have provided a secure and enlightening environment for many generations of children and parents. As the original founder of Kids’ Work, Lynda has provided licensed care for a little over thirty years.
“Helping children explore and learn in a hands-on environment brings me happiness and I’m committed to the continued growth and evolution of Kids’ Work Chicago. It is here that we’ll learn something new and laugh every day and in doing so, we’ll change the world.”
