A new opportunity for youngsters in Chicago to get an early
start on a world-class education became available in October 2012
when internationally acclaimed GEMS Education opened Little GEMS
International in Lincoln Park. Little GEMS International is a
school for young children ages 6 weeks to 5 years and is the first
GEMS Education preschool to open in the United States. GEMS
Education is the world's foremost provider of private education,
with over 50 years of education experience, educates 110,000
students from 151 countries. The GEMS World Academy serving grades
K-12th grade school will open in Chicago in September 2014.
The Little GEMS International approach is firmly based on
published scientific research into child development and early
year's education. This method blends the English Early Years
Foundation Stage Curriculum and HighScope with the unique,
specially written Little GEMS International programs designed to
enhance learning and to enable children to flourish academically,
personally, socially and emotionally.
Through Little Gems' unique focus on global citizenship your
child develops a wider awareness of the world and their place in
it. While learning in English, children are exposed to a variety of
world languages from an early age, developing the foundation to
become multilingual. They also learn about the cultures and customs
of the people who speak those languages and the universal values
that are accepted and admired in all cultures around the world.
Our state-of-the-art facility features learning environments
that were carefully planned and beautifully designed for every
stage of your child's development and capacity for learning.
Whether in the gym, on stage or taking a stroll in an indoor park,
activities will enhance the special skills needed for literacy,
numeracy and acquainting our children with different world
languages and cultures.
School Tours are scheduled every Wednesday from 10:00 -
