The Natalie G. Heineman Smart Love Preschool offers half-day preschool programs for children ages 3-5 and extended day kindergarten for children in our program turning 6. Programs are based on Smart Love, a uniquely effective parenting and child development philosophy. Supported by the latest child development research, Smart Love has been successfully applied in a broad range of settings for over three decades.

The Smart Love Preschool provides a setting that promotes children's long-term academic success by strengthening their social-emotional health and inspiring their intellectual creativity through play-based learning. Smart Love-trained teachers offer rich learning opportunities that instill a desire to learn and the ability to enjoy the process of learning. Our curriculum includes seed-to-table gardening, science experiments and exploration, author studies, all school library sing-a-longs, and more. It exceeds the State of Illinois Early Childhood educational benchmarks.

Conveniently located in a historic mansion on Chicago's north side, the preschool features sun-filled classrooms with views of the preschool's expansive gardens. For children younger than 3 years, we offer Toddler Explorations, Toddler Transitions and Parent & Baby group. Our toddler programs integrate creative arts, spacious motor play, and interactive music. Smart Love also offers educational seminars, books and private coaching for parents.
