Choosing a school for your child can be a complex process. We want to answer your questions about our program and enrollment process. Our admissions process is simple:

First: Take a tour! We invite you to visit The Children’s School to observe progressive education in action. Call 708.484.0833 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it to attend one of our monthly First Friday open houses.  2017 Open House dates include January 13, February 3, March 3, April 7, and May 5.  We find this tour answers many questions and initiates new ones, so ask away! Our aim is to make placements that are a good match for the child, the family, and the school.

Second: Submit an application.  The 2017-2018 application should be submitted with the $75 application fee. We'll also ask permission to talk with your child's current care provider / teacher.  This application is shared with the Admissions Committee.

Third: Have a conversation with our Director of Curriculum and Instruction, Christy Martin. We find this conversation helpful in answering remaining questions parents have as well as understanding the needs and goals for your child before enrollment decisions are made.

The Children’s School welcomes and celebrates all aspects of diversity, including differences in ability, interests, needs, ethnicity, gender, race, religion, sexual identity, and socioeconomic status.

"The marvelous thing about learning style is that every teacher can help to provide a warm prevailing breeze to lift all those “kites” and help them soar. Sometimes the strings may get tangled up, but now we can understand how a little more dimension and space can keep them free and flying."
