jump start early learning academy

our program consists of both teacher initiated and child initiated activities where the role of the teacher is to create learning experiences for children via direct instruction and as they move through various learning centers. at the same time, we are aware of the illinois early learning standards and do our best to “intentionally” meet these standards. the purpose of our program is to meet the needs of the individual child. we believe that collective interaction between parents, staff, children and the community will help our children reach their full potential. our philosophy is that children learn when placed in an environment that is conducive to learning.
