Hands-On and Blended Curriculum

Our teachers utilize Teaching Strategies Creative Curriculum in creating an experiential hands-on learning environment that incorporates the “best-of” Waldorf, Montessori, and Reggio Emilia philosophies to build on the strengths of each child and support development through both spontaneous learning opportunities and predictable routines.

Weekly Spanish Lessons To Boost Communication Skills

Your child’s linguistic abilities take off with weekly 20-minute Spanish lessons with Ms. Yesenia. They learn useful real-world vocabulary and form lasting cognitive connections that aid them in all their future endeavors, at no additional cost to you.

Reading and Writing Readiness

Both independent and shared reading/writing experiences provide daily authentic and integrated language arts readiness exposureLearning Without Tears provides cross curricular hands-on structured exposure to handwriting and language arts concepts.

Creativity And Artistic Expression

Weekly  music classes with Ms. Elisa from Wee Groove, and weekly yoga with Buddha Belly Yoga place an emphasis on creativity and self-expression. Open ended art allowing for choice and individuality help children to see the value in their ideas and effort while boosting self esteem and pride.

NIPSA Accreditation - A Mark of Excellence

Kids’ Work Chicago Riverview is proud to be accredited by NIPSA (National Independent Private School Association). The organization surveyed our school in 16 different areas, from philosophy, curriculum, organization, safety, and staff to student services, parent community, our building, finances, and more. The visiting delegates were so impressed with the teachers and their interactions with the children, the parents’ positive reviews of the school, and our “meticulously maintained early childhood program.” We are so proud and so grateful for our Kids’ Work community and are so happy to hold this mark of distinction!

Plenty of Exercise and Play

We’re incredibly lucky here at Kids’ Work to have a private onsite secure playground facility.  Our Junior-Kindergartners get plenty of fresh air and exersize during their multiple outdoor playtime sessions and walks on our peaceful neighborhood streets. Playtime within our indoor large-muscle space is yet other examples of the fun opportunities our students have to move and develop physically.

Our Parent Reviews

"Look no further. Kids' Work Chicago is as good as it gets"
Look no further. Kids' Work Chicago is as good as it gets. Our family recently moved out of state and one of the things we miss most is KWC. My son attended for two years, beginning when he was nearly two. Other reviewers have commented on the safe and loving environment, the creative, fun, but challenging curriculum, and the cleanliness, all of which I echo.

"The teachers at KWC are, without exception, warm and loving"
I send my two kids to Kids' Work Chicago and am so happy with the care, education, and experiences they receive. It makes the life of a working parent so much easier to know that their children are well-taken-care-of and Kids' Work has given me that peace-of-mind. The teachers at KWC are, without exception, warm and loving.
- Rachel W.
"The administrators and teachers are wonderful"
We have been a part of the Kidswork family since 2010, and love it. The administrators and teachers are wonderful, and truly love my children. My husband and I refer to Kidswork as "school" not daycare, due to the outstanding early childhood education they provide. Our oldest is now in Kindergarten and is thriving.
