Features

Active Learning

At One Hope United, your child will be actively learning throughout the day. Using the Creative Curriculum, our teachers design classroom environments with learning centers based around math and science, literature, music and movement, art, dramatic play, computers, and more. Through hands-on activities and the Respectful Infant Environment approach, children of all ages learn to explore, make choices, and understand the world around them.

Healthy Living

We believe in nurturing each child’s mind, body and soul. Our proprietary Healthy Lifestyles curriculum emphasizes exercise, healthy routines, nutritional practices and environmental awareness. Daily indoor or outdoor activities that promote this philosophy include cooking, maintaining center gardens, recycling, and gym or playground time.

Technology in the Classroom

Technology is a crucial part of any education today. Many of our classrooms incorporate computer activities and SMART Boards—interactive digital screens that support a range of learning styles, from tactical to visual to audio. Our Des Plaines, O’Hare, and Wilmette centers use Tadpoles, an app that allows teachers to send you photos, videos, and updates on your child’s day, straight to your email or smart phone. More centers will begin using tadpoles soon!

Family-Centered Care

We support your child’s healthy development both at our centers and while they’re at home. Our centers build deep relationships with the communities they’re in and customize their care to each individual child and family who attends. Centers offer parent programs to help you bond with your child and support their education, and our curriculum includes events that encourage family participation.

Nationally Accredited

All of our eligible centers are accredited or undergoing accreditation by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC)—a distinction held by only 6% of centers in the country.
