JOLIET EARLY LEARNING CENTER

Joliet Early Learning Center is located at 500 Parks Ave., and provides high quality, affordable early childhood education programs for children infancy through school age up to 12 years old. This opportunity was made possible through a grant awarded to One Hope United from the State of Illinois.

This new center is one of 12 One Hope United early childhood education programs in the Chicago metropolitan area offering a safe, nurturing, learning environment for children. Each center utilizes a unique “learn by doing” approach that allows children to explore and understand the world around them. All One Hope United centers are staffed by early childhood professionals who are passionate about developing lifelong learners.
