The Young Scholars Child Care Center in Island Lake started in a domestic building in March of 1997, with three kids and one teacher. During this same year three teachers were employed with eight students and a huge waiting list formed.

From Our Website

Our anti-bias statement has been developed in accordance with that of the National Academy of Early Childhood Programs. This statement states that as a team of staff, we will strive to educate children of all races, religions, family, backgrounds, cultures, gender, abilities, and ethnicity with equal respect and consideration. Our child care program provides children of both gender with equal opportunities to take part in all activities. Books, dolls, toys, photos, art work, crafts, and recordings that reflect diverse images will be used in daily activities and events for education.


A monthly lesson plan is posted in the room the first Monday of the month with our activities. Parents have the opportunity to read about their child's day on the "Today We" Bulletin Boards located on the parent board near the door in our classrooms.
