School Year Programs

Our school year is similar to the Chicago Public Schools calendar, running from the beginning of September until the middle of June. We offer two programs during the school year: Drop-off and Parent-Child. 

The Drop-off program has three options:

  • Five days a week (Monday through Friday)

  • Three days a week (Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday)

  • Two days a week (Thursday and Friday)

The school day for the Drop-off program runs from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., and is for children between 3 and 7 years old. 

The Parent-Child program invites caregivers and children to attend one or two days a week, and is integrated into the Drop-Off program. This program starts at 9:00 a.m. and ends at 11 a.m., and is for children under 3 years old.
