Description
Children's Learning Center (CLC) is a not-for-profit day care center dedicated to serving low-income families and licensed to serve children six weeks to twelve years of age. Priority in enrollment is given to children from families referred by social service agencies or from families headed by single parents. CLC is accredited by the National Accreditation Commission for Early Care and Education Programs effective November, 2013. CLC was rated Star Level Three by the Illinois Quality Counts: Quality Rating System in December 2012 and received a Gold Circle of Quality in the new ExceleRate Illinois program concurrent with accreditation. A majority of the spaces in the infant/toddler and preschool programs are reserved for low-income or "special needs" children.
