Evanston Day Nursery (EDN) is a not-for-profit, National Association for the
Education of Young Children (NAEYC) accredited, DCFS licensed child care center created in 1912
and committed to meeting the needs of working parents for quality childcare.
EDN offers year round preschool for children ages 2-5 years old. We have three preschool classrooms: one classroom for children ages 2-3 years old, and two classrooms for children ages 3-5 years old.
Our mission is to provide the highest quality care and education to children of diverse backgrounds, enabling them to develop to their fullest potential. We aim to help children develop healthy self-concepts and to make learning enjoyable. To make this goal a reality, each child is seen as an individual while being part of a community. The program is planned and the environment constructed to address developmental domains including: social-emotional growth, cognitive and language development and motor coordination skills.
Our staff is made up of professionally trained, life-long learners, knowlegable about the unique needs of children. Our teachers seek to maintain high levels of communication, prepare curriculum together weekly, and make plans for individual children as needed. Through our partnership with Childcare Network of Evanston, we have available each week a mental health behavioral consultant to meet the needs of our children & their families.
