Children's Learning Center is unique because the purpose of the program as stated in its bylaws is to serve primarily children from low-income families. Currently, about 70% of enrolled children are eligible to receive financial assistance for child care costs.

We are licensed by DCFS to serve children ages six weeks to twelve years. Programming, staff ratios, and activities are tailored to each age group, as well as each individual child.
