A Bright Future
For Your Child
A Play-filled Start To Academic & Social-Emotional Success
Twos | 2-3 years | Serving Chicago, IL
A Blended Curriculum To Boost Their Learning Journey
Your child’s teachers use a blend of 2 research-backed early childhood curricula to give them an unmatched academic experience. They learn literacy, math, science, and social studies skills through guided activities, and it all feels like play!
Potty-Training & Self-Care To Help Both Them & You
Your little one gets plenty of help with their potty-training skills, including dressing and undressing and handwashing hygiene. The more they practice, the more independent they become, and you see their confidence soar!
Daily Routines Foster Early School Skills & Readiness
Kids learn best when they know what to expect. Your child’s teachers follow a daily routine that gives them early insight into appropriate classroom behaviors, lining up, tidying their own space, following rules, and respecting others.
Bright, Colorful Classrooms Perfect For Learning & Fun
Your little one’s classroom basks in natural light, has child-friendly furnishings and materials, and provides lots of room to spread out while playing and learning. They love seeing their artwork on the walls and feel comfortable in their surroundings.
Daily Enrichments Like Art & Music Are Included In Tuition
Spanish, baby signing, art, music, and movement teach your little one exciting ways to communicate and express themselves. They dance, paint, sing, and use baby sign language to develop new cognitive, creative, and communication skills.
Outdoor Playtime Builds Muscles & Burns Energy
Your little one gets to run, ride bikes, and explore the playground with their friends while building muscles and working out the wiggles. Trips to a nearby park provide a change of scenery and bring everyone closer to nature.
Get Access To Their Day With Easy-To-Use Apps
PB&J® gives you a live-streamed real-time look at what your toddler is up to in their classroom, so you feel like you’re right there. Brightwheel™ delivers adorable photos, videos, and updates, so you never miss a moment.

Your two-year-old needs lots of good nutrition to grow strong and to support brain development. Every day, they receive a healthy, allergy-conscious, and organic-when-possible breakfast, lunch, and snack to promote good eating habits and keep them full and focused.

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.
