Description: Rainforest Learning Center is an environmental arts-based preschool and infant program for children six weeks to six years. At Rainforest, we introduce learning through active discovery and artistic exploration. Our innovative programs are worlds beyond anything Chicago has seen before and are producing students who are exceptionally prepared for life beyond preschool. Rainforest uses the arts to encourage academic, personal, and social growth. Our programs go beyond traditional finger-painting and crayons (though we have this too) and include work with a diverse range of media such as sculpture, pottery, painting, piano, dance, yoga, and theater. The diversity of artistic experiences we offer our students is next to unheard of in a early childhood setting. Our programs nurture each student's creative vision and provide ample opportunity for children to explore their creative sides. Along side our arts curriculum, Rainforest offers an equally unique and successful academic curriculum. Our curriculum centers on a hands-on, engaging approach towards learning that creates a fun and emotionally supportive place for all children who have a multitude of different learning styles. By incorporating our specialty arts program into an all encompassing academic lesson plan, students of all ages have thrived and excelled academically, with a consistent pattern of students being accepted into many of the city’s top primary schools. Rainforest Learning Center’s students are constantly exposed to the wonders of the world around them. There are so many exciting places to explore right here in the city, and we take a great joy in adventuring with our students. From the zoo and the aquarium, to nature parks and museums, to plays for children, Rainforest students go on field trips every month of the year. We also take great care to expose our students to environmentally-friendly learning programs. Living in an urban environment, our students often miss out on seeing much of what nature has to offer, which makes it even more important that every student experiences hands-on natural science learning as part of our program.
