Where Every Child’s Potential Shines

Educare West DuPage is a high-quality early childhood school located in West Chicago, Illinois that serves children from birth through five years old and their families utilizing a comprehensive approach.

Our mission is to lead, inspire, and deliver early childhood education that supports all of our young children and families in reaching their full potential.


90% of Brain Growth Happens Before Kindergarten

It keeps growing to about 80% of adult size by age 3 and 90% – nearly full grown – by age 5.



Let’s start at the very first stage of life. Quality early childhood development provided by families and caregivers ensures that children enter school prepared for learning. Early experiences play a crucial role in shaping future learning, behavior, and overall health.


When toddlers start school prepared for learning, there is an increased likelihood of achieving grade-level reading proficiency by 3rd grade. This leads to reduced remedial costs, eliminates potential life-long gaps, and enhances the overall effectiveness of our education system for all students.


Achieving grade-level reading proficiency by 3rd grade enhances the likelihood of high school graduation for children. High school dropouts face a higher risk of unemployment, and constitute a significant portion (82%) of the prison population, making early reading proficiency a critical factor in shaping future outcomes.


Completing high school increases the likelihood of pursuing higher education for children. A well-educated workforce benefits businesses, while high school graduates enter the job market as confident, accomplished, employable individuals who contribute to taxation.

“They have many many things to offer, and not only help the children; they also help the whole family.”
