Welcome to Cornerstone Children's Learning Center (CCLC) in downtown Chicago! I am Lois Scott, the executive director, and I have over 12 years of experience in nonprofit administration and five years working at this school. Anila Aleksi is the associate director and has more than 10 years with Childtime and CCLC. We are both passionate about providing a great center for the care and education of young children.
Our learning center is a unique environment for infants through six years old. We have a great team of teachers and a warm, secure, creative, and comfortable facility. We have play areas both inside our second story center and outside above street level.
Cornerstone has a diverse population with children from many countries who speak many languages. We offer fun and fitness and Spanish classes to every child each week as well as yoga, music, art, science and fitness and health. As a nonprofit organization formed by LaSalle Street Church, we keep our tuition affordable and offer a scholarship program for families who qualify for extra assistance.
Our program is accredited by NAEYC, the highest standard in early childhood education. Our teachers are committed and well-trained to equip your children with the social, emotional and problem-solving skills they need.
Currently, due to COVID-19, we have introduced heightened safety protocols. Families drop off and pick up outside the center. We conduct temperature checks for every student, family member and teacher that enters the building. All of our teachers wear face masks throughout the day. Safety is our top priority with cleaning and sanitizing throughout the day.
Please give us a call and we will be happy to answer your questions and give you a tour (limited for COVID safety) of our Cornerstone Children's Learning Center in Chicago, IL!
Our first priority is making sure infants both are safe and feel safe, in a nurturing, stimulating classroom. Toys and materials allow for freedom of movement within safe boundaries, so children can explore, develop motor skills, and engage their curiosity.Learn More
