WHO AND WHAT IS WICKER PARK ECC?
At Wicker Park Early Childhood Center, we passionately believe that learning should be an adventure that begins at birth. Our mission is to offer a vibrant and innovative learning community committed to child-focused exploration, creativity and collaboration.
Our Baby Sensory and Toddler Sense programs strive to offer the best quality, imagination, and variety in everything we do. Baby Sensory founder, Dr. Lin Day PhD created a program that nurtures children's core brain development, helping them fully benefit from all future education.
UNIQUE APPROACH TO EARLY LEARNING
We offer the perfect learning environment for children between 0-5 years old. No matter which class you choose, you’ll always find a welcoming environment, a professional class leader, activities that stimulate and help the development of children, carefully prepared equipment, a comfortable routine and an interesting and themed lesson!
Our sessions run smoothly and are highly interactive. We put a lot of love, passion and imagination into every thing we do – so that you can spend quality time with your children.
Classes are between 45-60 minutes long and babies, children and parents join on a weekly basis.
FOUNDED IN THE UK, INTERNATIONALLY RENOWNED
“When I began my classes in 2003, I wanted to make a difference. After 30 years working in childcare and education, I had so much to share with parents, I felt I could be a real help. Since then I’ve spent pretty much every waking hour developing, adjusting, improving and amending our programs – driven by the passion and commitment to offer the best service possible. And I hope that each session shows my dedication and depth of preparation”

Hi everyone! After completing my degree in Elementary Education at DePaul University, I taught all age groups from Kindergarten through fifth grade. For the past three years I have taught preschool, where I discovered my passion for Early Childhood Education. I have gained a unique perspective and been given a gratifying gift by seeing children in all different stages of their developmental journey. I am constantly in awe of children and amazed by their passion and wonder for the world. Children have unlimited potential. It is my job to challenge them, so they can take their education to the next level. Learning is a partnership between children, their parents, and their teacher. I look forward to being part of the team that prepares your child for a successful life.
