For over 100 years, Mary Crane Center has been dedicated to the comprehensive early development of children and to supporting their families through a variety of programs. Our goal is to provide quality education in a safe and diverse environment and to strengthen the bonds between children and their families. Throughout its history, Mary Crane Center has grown in order to meet the changing needs of the families we serve. Our dynamic teaching methods encourage each child to bring his or her individuality and experiences into the classroom. By identifying a child’s likes, dislikes, struggles, and strengths, teachers can enhance each child’s personal education and help them to develop the life skills they need to achieve his or her goals.
We have four Learning Centers and six partnership locations available in Chicago. Visit us today.
We accept children from the ages of six weeks through five years old. All abilities are welcome. Over ten languages are represented by our students in our classrooms.
We utilize The Creative Curriculum® to serve the whole child and create a safe, nurturing environment for every child. Our programs are accredited.
We, as teachers, are dedicated to our students and hold early childhood education degrees and additional certifications for creating the best learning environments.
