Inquiry. Excitement. Integrity.
These are the hallmarks of an education at The Children's
School, an independent elementary school located in the near west
suburbs of Chicago. As progressive educators, we engage children in
hands-‐on learning, creative problem-‐solving, and cooperative
decision-‐making. Our students work both individually and
collaboratively to explore topics of interest within a diverse,
literature-‐rich curriculum that nurtures their intellectual
curiosity. They delve into extended, multidisciplinary projects
that demonstrate their learning, from filming a 1940s-‐style
newsreel to building a model "green" city. And they investigate the
world beyond the school walls, learning what it means to be
citizens in the 21st century. At The Children's School, children
are given the opportunity and the responsibility to become caring
individuals, reflective thinkers, and lifelong learners.
We strive every day to honor children's voices and to celebrate
the joy of learning. Join us for an Open House and discover what
makes The Children's School special.
