Our Philosophy

We believe the educational development and success of children can be significantly enhanced when they participate in early childhood programs and services.  At ECC we implement a curriculum and instructional practices which align with the Illinois Early Learning and Development Standards.  We are committed to assisting each child in the development of a strong foundation for learning. 


Our Mission

We will provide an environment for our students which facilitate the cognitive, social, emotional, and physical development of each child, from birth through age five, in preparation for lifelong learning


Our Values

-All children develop through active learning by making choices, exploring their environment and interacting with others.

-All children are unique and have the right to develop to their greatest potential.

-Education is a partnership between school, home and the community.

-All children should be respected, and encouraged while in a safe and caring environment.



Your Baby was Born to Learn

As a parent, you are our child’s first and most influential teacher.  Partnership for Kids can help you lay a strong foundation for your success in school.  Our goal is to help you give your child the best possible start in life.
