Quality Child Care for Children of All Abilities
A child’s environment and social experience in their first three years of life is critical to their brain development and can have a decisive, long-lasting impact on their well-being and ability to learn. For many parents, this is enough to make finding high-quality child care a top priority. The Easterseals Child Development Center Network responds to the needs and concerns of parents with children of all abilities.
Inclusive Child Care at Easterseals:
Child care is available for children ages 6 weeks to 48 months in our program. Inclusive child care is provided in three learning environments at Easterseals Regional Pediatric Center located at 212 Barney Drive in Joliet.
The infant program at Lovable Lilies Child Care Center is designed to create a warm, nurturing, and safe environment where infants are encouraged to learn, grow, and explore using all of their senses! Rapid development happens during the first year of life and therefore it is essential that our teachers provide stimulating activities to encourage optimal development.
In this room, we encourage free play and structured activities geared to the toddler age group.
Three Year Old Room
In this room, we emphasize free play and gross motors skills and development.
For children with special needs, Lovable Lilies Child Care Center offers the additional benefit of having our team of experienced therapists just down the hall and the opportunity for therapy during the day.
Units of Learning:
We work on units each week, with each unit lasting between one and two weeks. Special activities and art projects are completed related to the unit. Occasionally we have visits from such guests as the police and fire departments, etc.
Each Easterseals facility offers ongoing training for care givers; low adult to child ratios; developmentally appropriate learning activities; and top-quality facilities that meet or exceed industry standards. As a non-profit organization, Easterseals provides its high-quality services at costs that are affordable to families in need.
