Our Philosophy

The purpose of Kidwatch Plus® is to offer educational programs and to help maintain family life by providing quality care for children while their parents are working or attending school.

As we bridge the gap from home to child care center, we guide children to a positive self image while building social skills in a group setting.

We treat each child as an individual, working from the level each child has attained and move forward one step at a time.

Our stable, qualified staff offers a caring and positive environment in which your child can learn, be loved and feel secure.

Kidwatch Plus® is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC)®, and licensed by both the City of Chicago and the State of Illinois.

Kidwatch has also been awarded the “Gold Circle of Quality” by ExceleRate Illinois® which is the quality rating system for early childhood education in the State of Illinois. ExceleRate® makes program quality comparisons across program types, creates and aligns program standards with early learning standards, develops and aligns infrastructure to support quality improvement and assesses achievement along a continuum. 

ExceleRate Illinois® has four circles of child care quality. Kidwatch Plus® holds the highest honor, the Gold Circle of Quality. Kidwatch’s ability to achieve ExceleRate’s “Gold Circle of Quality” is evidence that its curriculum is aligned with Preschool for All, Head Start, Early Head Start, and the Illinois State Standards.
