Engaging and Hands-On Curriculum

The best of Waldorf, Montessori, and Reggio Emilia early learning philosophies, create engaging, theme-based learning focusing on the interests of your child. We develop hands-on experiences that immerse your child in a world of activities designed to develop their highest learning potential.

Every Moment is a Learning Moment

At Kids’ Work, we like to take advantage of typical everyday interaction. Utilizing these “teachable moments” allows for the natural and authentic development of important social, emotional, cognitive, and physical early learning skills.

Plenty Of Self-Directed Playtime

We allow your little one to engage in self-directed play every day, encouraging them to make conscious decisions and feed their interests. Whether it’s block play, art, reading, or interacting with friends, this time fosters your preschooler’s independence and problem solving skills.

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!

Individualized Attention and Guidance

It is our goal to provide every child in our group with the tailored and individualized attention, care, and guidance they deserve. Our highly qualified and experienced educators monitor and plan for each child’s academic and developmental needs.

Language, Music, & Movement Boost Their Cognitive Skills

Your child’s well-rounded education includes weekly 25-minute Spanish lessons from Lango Chicago, Buddha Belly Yoga, music with Ms. Elisa from Wee Groove, and classes with All About Dance. Their communication and motor skills soar, at no extra cost to you.

Fresh Air and Exersice

Kids’ Work offers regular opportunities for outdoor play and exploration! Our private, onsite, and secure playground provides space for developing coordination and balance. Our river side location provides the perfect location for relaxing walks and observing nature in action

Daily Artistic Activities Let Their Creativity Shine

Daily classroom activities include music, dramatic play, and art. Your child’s budding creativity blooms with singing, dancing, painting, and artistic expression that allows them to explore their passions while they learn and grow.

Healthy Family Style Meals

We subscribe to the family-style meal concept, which allows teachers and children to eat together in a relaxed environment. Our catering company, Healthy Organic Kids offeres refined meal plans exposing your child to a wide variety of fresh fruits and vegetables while helping in the development of a healthy and varied palate.

Regular Communication Updates

We understand the importance of communication so parents always feel engaged, informed, and connected to their child’s day. In combination with our classroom Daily Charts which track your child’s eating, sleeping, and bathroom habits, use of the Brightwheel parent communication app also allows teachers to share photos and anecdotal snippets each day.

Added Support For Parents

We’re here to help with all the little things, so don’t worry.  Once your child shows signs of readiness, we guide parents through the potty training process.  In the meantime, we provide all diapers, wipes, and ointments as well as lotion and sunscreen.  

Safety Comes First

The health and safety of our students is our highest priority.  Staff members are kept up to date on their first aid and CPR trainings.  Our locations are safe and secure featuring monitored and recorded security cameras.  All exterior doors are locked for added safety, and use of KISI Keyless Entry System allows only for the entry of families and authorized staff members.

Our Parent Reviews

"Kids’ Work brought light back to our son’s face"
Kids’ Work provides a warm, safe, and enriching environment that not only accepts but values the unique nature of each child. Kids’ Work brought light back to our son’s face after a difficult experience at another preschool. When I told the staff at Kids’ Work that he still had accidents and wasn’t completely potty-trained, fully expecting to be scolded as we were at our previous school, the response was, “of course he does, he’s only three!” I knew right then it would be a wonderful fit not only for our son, but for us as parents.

"They share pics of my kid multiple times of the day"
The only place I've visited where I think they take better care of my kid than I could do on my own! They share pics of my kid multiple times of the day and provide a level of stimulation and social interaction that I simply could not do myself. She has already learned so much. I wish I could be there to learn some of the songs myself and splash in the sensory table. One of the best decisions we ever made for our child, and for us.

"The entire staff is truly invested in each child"
We started our daughter here when she was 3, and we were so incredibly happy with the experience. She attended part-time, but even though we weren't there but a couple days a week, we felt part of the Kid's Work family. The entire staff is truly invested in each child, and our daughter loved her friends a teachers. The projects and daily play immediately engaged her in and out of the classroom. Our daughter is now at our neighborhood school, but we started our son there. He is enjoying it just as much!
