The Farm & Nature Discovery School at The Center provides children ages 3 through 6 the unique opportunity to attend school on a 60-acre farm. Our highly qualified and trained teachers guide our students to learn through exploration of their natural environment. Environmental education is integrated with a creative based curriculum, reaching toward developmentally appropriate milestones set forth by the state of Illinois.

We offer two or three day sessions in the morning or afternoon. Each session is two and a half hours long. We also offer a 5 day Kindergarten program. We feature low teacher-to-student ratios and bright, lively classrooms. We encourage growth in all developmental domains including motor skills, cognitive development, literacy, creativity, and social/emotional development.

For more information or to arrange a tour, please call our School Director Danielle Bell at 708.361.8933 or email

(Please Note: All children must be fully toilet trained to attend)
