Welcome to Kids & Company Chicago Harrison! We offer full and part time programs for children ranging from six weeks through to six years.
At Kids & Company, we use an emergent curriculum and learn through play philosophy. We’re so proud of our proprietary programs. They include Pre-Literacy and Early Reading, Art and Exploration, and Munchkinetics (movement) and are specially designed to engage our children in a learning process that encourages self-expression, creativity, coordination and most importantly, fun! You’ll find sign language in our baby and toddler rooms. All our children participate in music, Spanish, science & exploration and creative play throughout our day.
Hello! My name is Mayam Jacobo and I am the Center Director at Chicago Harrison Kids & Company! I have been working in the childcare field for over 8 years now and have enjoyed working in every classroom. After working in the Preschool classroom for 4 years, I began my position as a Center Director. There is no better way to start your morning each day than by greeting families and receiving morning hugs and smiles from my students! I attended Northeastern Illinois University & Morton college for my undergrad ECE studies. I have also recently obtained my MBA from Robert Morris Illinois University. In my personal time, I love to spend time with my family and my dog Simon! One of my favorite things to do is to vacation anywhere that has a beach! I also love reading children’s books as I believe that Early Literacy Development is important (My favorite is “The Day the Crayons Quit”). Please take some time to visit our center. I’d love to get to know you and be able to be a caregiver for your little one. I know that it can be difficult to leave your child for the first time but I am certain that our passionate staff will make you feel like you’ve made the right decision!
At Kids & Company, we work with your family to ensure that the transition is a smooth one. Before your child’s first day, we’ll provide information on what to expect. We’ll create an integration schedule that is right for your child and every day that your child is in the classroom, you’ll receive a daily report that lets you know how your child’s day was. You’ll also be able to see him or her on our in classroom web cameras. The Centre Director will even send you an email before the end of the day if your child has a special “wow” moment that day.
Toddlers learn best in the context of relationships within small groups. There are fewer distractions and children’s activities are more focused. In Kids & Company toddler classrooms, our small groups allow very young children to make connections, form caring relationships, and learn to understand other children.
All two-year-olds examine everything they see, hear, feel and observe in an attempt to make sense of the world around them. In our preschool programs, Kids & Company teachers interact, observe and interpret the interests of preschool students to encourage further discoveries by planning activities and investigations that expand your child’s learning.
For the time being, our in-centre birthday party and other live events will temporarily not be available. If you require any information on future bookings or have any questions, please reach firstname.lastname@example.org
