About the Provider


Thank you for your interest in Castlehill Child Care! This is our 6th year in business and we are growing and making some exciting changes! We not only relocated across the street from the Midway Village bike path off of Perryville and Guilford (Oxtail Way) but we are now a preschool only program for children ages 3 and up. Our class is led by a member of NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children) and is an experienced teacher with a Bachelor's degree in early childhood education and special education. We are open M-F from 7 AM to 6 PM with extended hours available. We offer full or part-time options as well as before and after school care for children at Brookview and Fairview schools.

Additional Information:

-We are a licensed program that participates in the Federal food program.

-We follow a preschool curriculum that aligns with the IL Learning Guidelines.

-We believe children learn best when they are allowed to explore their indoor and outdoor environments, are allowed to make choices regarding their learning experience, and are allowed to express their creativity in meaningful ways.

-We are currently licensed as a day care home but are working towards a group license which would allow us to have a preschool program with 12 children that would learn and grow together!

Thanks again for your interest. We look forward to meeting you and your family!

I have used this provider for more than 6 months

Our son has been with Heather for over a year. He has learned so much while being cared for and loved dearly! Heather provides excellent care while teaching the kids. Highly recommend her program!
