*Small Class-Size and mixed-aged group so all children are engaged, supported, and challenged in a home-based program with an Illinois State Certified Teacher.

*Progressive whole child education that goes beyond academics to empower your child to love and respect themselves as well as our world and others.

*All-Inclusive Weekly Enrichment/Specials including Service, charity, S.T.E.A.M., Fun Fitness, Spanish Classes, Kids in the Kitchen, and Entrepreneurship/Finance.

*Our Mission, Vision, and Core Values support The Play Lab children, families, and staff to promote a positive, compassionate, and collaborative school culture! 

*We promote The Growth Mindset and practice Mindfulness and Positive Affirmations.

*Illinois ASCD Award Winning Whole Child Program and Teacher!

*Beyond day care or child care, we promote the importance of high-quality early childhood education AND care!

*Year-round programming with multiple breaks throughout the year, so students don't have large gaps in early education and care and teachers can do professional development and take necessary breaks to replenish and avoid burnout.

*We use BRIGHTWHEEL, a Family Communication App to utilize contactless check-in/out, daily health checks, automatic billing, and send notes, pictures, and videos throughout your child's day.
