Eyes On The Future

Why Work Here?

A great organization to grow in professionally and has a high regard for research-based quality Early Childhood Education

Who We Are: We are located in the Rogers Park community on Chicago's north side. We have been providing quality care and education for children from 3 months to 12 years of age since 1994. Our Mission: To provide quality early care and education through research-based curriculum, programs, and family-oriented initiatives for the purpose of promoting school readiness in children ages 3 months to 12 years of age Our Philosophy: Eyes on the Future believes that children are active learners who learn best through play. Children gain knowledge by moving, touching, seeing, hearing, smelling and tasting. As such, children are encouraged to experiment and to explore the people and objects that are in their environment. A physical environment that is safe, healthy and that contains a variety of materials enables children to safely explore their environment. We believe that all children move at their own pace through developmental stages. Our classrooms have been carefully designed to ensure that children progress and have success in social-emotional, physical, cognitive and language development.
