Highly Experienced and Caring Educators

With ample experience and educational background, our staff skillfully develop age appropriate learning environments and daily lessons designed to match the growing mobility and curiosity of busy toddlers.

Enriching Age Appropriate Learning

Our safe yet stimulating toddler learning environments provide the opportunity for  well supported exploration and growth.  The uniformity of the daily schedule allows for increased exposure to routine and structure while building in ample flexibility and individualization.

Daily activities that allow such exploration include:

Circle Time - time for stories, music, and social-emotional learning

Art Projects - open ended utilizing a variety of age appropriate materials

Story Time- being read to and looking through age-appropriate books

Sensory & Manipulative Work - time for exploration and problem solving

Indoor Gross Motor - dedicated play space for children to develop movement and balance

Outdoor Play - brand new playground with features perfect for open play and growt

Music, Movement, & Language Enrichments Included In Tuition

Your toddler’s cognitive and communication skills blossom with baby signing, plus weekly Spanish Lessons with Ms. Yesenia, Buddha Belly Yoga class, and musical visits from Ms. Elisa of Wee Groove to help build crucial mind-body connections.

Personalized Classroom Settings

The small-group setting of our toddler classroom is ideal for providing the individualized interaction and instruction these young eager learners need and desire.

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!

Spanish Language Exposure

Our toddler classrooms utilize infant/toddler sign language to help students communicate their needs as they build verbal language. Toddlers also have weekly Spanish Class with Ms. Yesenia to provide a comfortable base for later language study in addition to inciting a love for language learning!

Health and Safety Come First

Maintaining a safe and clean environment is of top priority for us here at Kids’ Work. We follow meticulous cleaning, sanitizing, and hand washing procedures throughout the day. Our visiting nurse consultant provides ongoing support and training for all staff. In addition, our caretakers participate in CPR certification trainings each year.

Outdoor Exploration

With their newly established mobility, toddlers are right at home during outdoor play. Toddlers might go out for a walk in our strollers, or spend time playing on our gorgeous new playground. Both provide ample fresh air, a fun new environment, and space to move around.

Parent Communication App

We strive to keep our parents connected and informed.  Through our classroom Daily Chart we share information on meals, naps, and diaper changes. Daily check-ins via our Brightwheel parent communication app provides parents with photos and snippets of their child’s day.

Our buildings are safe and secure with locked exterior doors, video monitoring systems, and the Kisi Keyless Entry System allowing only authorized staff and parents to enter the building.

Our Parent Reviews

"The teachers are very caring and creative"
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.

"I am so pleased with Kids Work!! "
My 17-month old daughter now goes here (started a couple months ago) and she loves it too! After having both kids in part-time, we are moving up to full-time starting in June. I am so pleased with Kids Work!! A GEM in this city!

"The teachers also give me such detailed updates"
Kids' Work has given my son the most invaluable gift, the gift of learning! He has been at Kids' Work for roughly a year and he has really blossomed into a little person I didn't know was possible. He is 2 years old and is able to sing songs, count to 20, and knows the entire alphabet. He has enhanced his social skills by sharing activities and toys with others his own age. The teachers also give me such detailed updates that I am just amazed what they accomplish each day.
