At Childtime, your child gets what he or she needs to develop their best mind, their love of learning, their personality, their bright future. Inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach, central to our educational philosophy is the belief that secure relationships with responsive and respectful adults provide the basis for all learning. Staff and teachers, and the relationships children develop with them, are vital for learning, for trust, and for independence. Our approach is designed to help them grow as students and people, in school, and in life beyond.
CCLC is designed to be of such high quality that families of all income levels will be attracted to it — and made affordable so that families of all income levels can use it.
To assure that the quality is exemplary, The LaSalle Foundation has contracted with the highly respected Lake Shore Preparatory School to manage the new program. To assure that this program is affordable, the Foundation has set a goal of providing scholarships for 50 percent of the children who attend, so that low-income families, too, can provide their children with the best in early childhood development programs.
CCLC occupies the entire second floor in the five-story Cornerstone Center. In addition to large, bright classrooms and an indoor play area, the program has a spacious, well-equipped outdoor playground. Because it is always an issue in child care programs, security has been carefully planned and is supported by a one-way traffic flow through the second floor corridors. Parent take their children upstairs and sign in each morning; to ensure that parents and teachers have a chance to communicate daily, parents pick their children up from the classroom.
