Over the past two years, the exceptional staff and administration at Children's Learning Center have been working hard toward earning accreditation from National Accreditation Commission (NAC). On November 5, 2013, we learned that all our hard work and dedication have paid off! Earning NAC recognition demonstrates CLC's commitment to excellence and results in program improvement and quality enhancement. For more information about NAC Accreditation, please visit http://www.naccp.org.


Children's Learning Center Main Center has earned a STAR LEVEL 3 AWARD from the Illinois Quality Counts: Quality Rating System, in recognition of this program's effort in going beyond the state licensing requirements to help children receive an enhanced learning and care experience.

Children’s Learning Center enrolls children from six weeks to twelve years of age. CLC is licensed by the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services to serve 146 children at the day care center ("Main Center") at 905 South Fourth Street, and a total of 66 school-age children in two DeKalb elementary schools.

CLC is open Monday through Friday from 6:35 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at 905 South Fourth Street. The before school program at Littlejohn School operates on school days from 6:45 a.m. to school time; the after school programs at Lincoln and Littlejohn Schools are open on regular school days from dismissal to 5:30 p.m. See the calendar page for school holidays and days the Center is closed.

Children's Learning Center is a Kishwaukee United Way partner agency and a member program of Community Coordinated Child Care (4-C), serving the DeKalb area since 1968. An independent not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization governed by a Board of Directors, Children's Learning Center welcomes donations of funds and materials.


Children's Learning Center provides high quality, comprehensive early education and child care in a safe and nurturing environment for DeKalb area families. The experienced teachers provide age-appropriate curriculum through play-based learning while promoting the social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development of every child.
