Serving Working Families


Ensuring all children meet their potential

The Day Nursery is a 501(c)3 that has been providing quality early childhood education for working families for over 100 years. Our creative play-based program instills a love of learning and encourages children’s continued social, cognitive and emotional development, ensuring that they become life-long learners and achieve success in future formal education.

Covid-19 Precautions

The Day Nursery understands the concern many parents have regarding early childhood education and the spread of Covid-19. Since reopening in July, The Day Nursery has not experienced any incidents of Covid-19 transmission. 

The Day Nursery's mitigation efforts exceed those required by the CDC, the Illinois Department of Public Health, and the Illinois Department of Child and Family Services. 

Our blog, Meal and Snack Time, describes our Covid-19 mitigation protocols surrounding meals and snacks. Back to School and Safety During Covid-19 explains additional safety protocols and mitigations implemented to improve air purity in the building. 

The Day Nursery has implemented many more Covid-19 mitigation protocols. If you would like more detailed information, please feel free to contact Cari Christoff, Executive Director, at 708-383-8211.
