About the Provider
Description: Wholesome Horizons Learning Center is a licensed home daycare and preschool located in Bolingbrook, IL, convenient to the Stevenson Expressway (I-55). Wholesome Horizons provides a structured, nurturing environment at an affordable cost. Infants and toddlers are provided an environment where they can explore through play and develop physically, socially, emotionally, and cognitively. Preschoolers work towards gaining the social, emotional, and academic skills necessary for them to be successful in kindergarten and beyond. School age children receive a structured before and after school program that allows them time to complete homework, extend their learning, and/or relax after a long day! We place a SERIOUS emphasis on play at all ages! We serve wholesome, nutritious, mostly organic meals and snacks that are free from artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives, GMO's, hydrogenated oils, and high fructose corn syrup.

: I am the mother of two amazing little girls! I am also a licensed child care provider through the Department of Children and Family Services in Will County. I have received training in CPR, First Aid, and SIDS and complete continuing education on early childhood topics each year. My experience with children extends well beyond my own two daughters, and actually to when I was very young. My mother owned a home child care for 20 years, so I grew up in a child care (literally!). I worked at various after school and summer camps programs throughout high school and college, and tutored through numerous organizations. I also hold a bachelor’s degree in elementary education and Spanish, and a master’s degree in linguistics with a concentration in ESL (Teaching English to Speakers of other Languages). I spent my first three years after college teaching English in the beautiful country of Taiwan. I gained a tremendous world view and was able to travel to such places as India, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, and the Philippines. I moved to Chicago on returning to the United States and have taught at a charter school for the past seven years, holding such positions as reading and language specialist. Most recently, I have taught fourth grade for the past five years. I am somewhat fluent in Spanish and also speak just a bit of Mandarin.
