Prepare Them For A
Bright Classrooms, Loving Teachers,
& An Enriching Blended Curriculum
Preschool | 3-5 years | Serving Chicago, IL
Expect A Blended Curriculum To Prepare Your Child For School
Your child’s teacher uses two exceptional, play-based, research-backed curricula to deliver literacy, math, science, social studies, and social-emotional learning. With Creative Curriculum ® and Funshine Express®, your child gets the encouragement they need to become eager, empathetic lifelong learners.
Social-Emotional Learning Prepares Them For Life Too
Your preschooler’s teacher guides them through communicating and managing emotions, self-regulation, identifying and empathizing with what peers are feeling, and using appropriate classroom behaviors. A solid foundation of social-emotional skills sets your child up for the future.
Routines & Responsibilities Reinforce Good School Skills
When your child knows what to expect in the classroom, they can better focus on learning. Daily routines bring comfort, and duties like tidying up or being the line leader teach school citizenship and prepare them for elementary school.
Spacious Classrooms Are A Home-Away-From-Home
Bright, airy, and full of child-friendly materials, toys, and furnishings, your child’s classroom becomes a second home. They love displaying their artwork on the walls and playing in open spaces that invite learning and fun.
Language & Arts Enrichments Boost Their Brain Development
Spanish, sign language, art, music, and movement add layers of excitement and engagement to your child’s days. They have a blast communicating and creating, and you know their brain is soaking up all the benefits of language and arts education.
Outdoor Adventures Build Muscles, Motor Skills, & Memories
Your preschooler loves having time on the playground to run, climb, explore, and ride bikes in the fresh air. For a change of pace, visits to the nearby park give your child the space to enjoy and connect with nature.
Brightwheel™ & Live-Stream Video Keep You In The Know

Hear What Parents Have To Say...
My two year old is learning sign language along with early learning development skills that will prepare him for pre school. I love his excitement about going to school. What joys me the most about this establishment is the Strong Black Owned leadership and the homie but professional safe environment for my child. I am happy and glad to say that Ms. Valerie and her beautiful staff are here in helping me grow my son for his future in this village.

What can I say about Ms Valerie and the entire University Kids staff! They are consistent, professional, always thrilled to see my little ones! Ms Valerie is a phenomenal Director, and she has created an all star team of teachers that do not disappoint! I have seen the academic growth in my 4 year old who is ready now to tackle kindergarten! My 1 year who came to them a little behind has learned so much in their care! They are an awesome addition to our village!

My son is currently attending here and I couldn't be more pleased. We are greeted every morning with a smile. They have an app that let's me track his activities during the day and post adorable pics and videos. The workers are very hands on and loving and professional.
