Fairyland Nursery School is a privately owned and operated Day Care Center and Kindergarten licensed both by the City of Chicago and State of Illinois. Our building is equipped with a fire alarm and emergency lighting systems. Fire drills involving all children are conducted regularly. We have a fenced, locked playground. The facilities are air conditioned. We serve breakfast, a hot lunch and an afternoon snack.

We accept children of the ages 2 through 6, providing, of course, that vacancies exist. All children, ages 3 and up must be completely toilet trained. We provide services suited to the needs of many children:

  • Early Pre-School (ages 2-3)
  • Pre-School (ages 3-4)
  • Pre-Kindergarten (ages 4-5)

Our Philosophy

Young children have the right and deserve the privilege to grow and develop as individuals to their fullest capacity.

A child's slowly emerging self-image is built up from the day of birth.

We try to provide the best possible climate in which the child can grow. This means discovering, appreciating, and encouraging each child's individuality.

We recognize that a positive, healthy sense of self-worth is essential to growth and development. The child's innate sense of wonder and curiosity will urge him to learn, if properly appreciated and nourished.

Our responsibility is to provide situations and tools with which each child can thoroughly explore the stage of growth he is in, by experimenting, discovering and by allowing him to move on to the next stage at his own pace.

Our concern is for the total child; his emotional, social, physical, intellectual and moral-ethical development.
