Child Care and Early Education

One Hope United Child Development Centers cater to the individual needs of each community, child and family in our care. We nurture children’s growth and partner with parents to help children become independent, self-confident, inquisitive learners. Our curriculum-based programs focus on preparing students to succeed and meet their individual goals.

Our programs have unique curriculum for children at different stages of development and serve children ages 0-12. Find an Early Learning Center near you!

Why One Hope United?


Each of our centers has implemented extensive safety protocols to protect the health of our students, staff, and families.

  • Masks must be worn at all times (by everyone over 2 years old)
  • Temperature checks are required to enter each center
  • Regular disinfection practices are in place throughout the day
  • Non-essential visitors are not allowed in our centers

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 positive choices, and understand the world around them.

Additionally, all of our centers have met requirements for Gold Circle of Quality certification by ExceleRate Illinois—a distinction that recognizes continuous quality improvement in early learning and development programs.


Many of our centers accept forms of financial assistance that can help fund your child’s education. CCAP is accepted at all of our One Hope United early learning centers. Other forms of financial assistance are accepted, but may vary by center location. Our Center Directors are happy to consult with you about how to fund your child’s education.

Contact a center director to see if you qualify for financial assistance!


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.
