Welcome to The Children's Courtyard early childhood education center in Aurora, IL! My name is Ugne and I am the center director. Our school is proud to offer a safe and enriching environment for your children. We offer Infant Care, Preschool, Pre-K, and Before- and After-School programs for children six weeks through 12 years old.
We closely follow recommendations from state and local authorities, to maintain a clean, safe, healthy environment. Once in the classroom your kiddo will have their imagination jump started by our dedicated staff using the award winning High Scope curriculum, that focuses on hands on and engaged learning.
We’re committed to providing simple ways to keep you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. With live streaming video, you can view your child’s classroom from any device or computer. Plus, get real-time updates with our family communication app.
We would love to have your family join ours here at The Children's Courtyard in Aurora! Schedule a tour today to see all we have to offer!
Are you concerned about the impact of COVID on your child’s education? You’re not alone. Now, more than ever, early education matters. We’re here to help.
Starting at the front door, our already robust health and safety procedures have been enhanced to ensure a clean, welcoming school environment. The well-being of your child is our top priority, now, and always.
In this classroom, your child will make discoveries and think independently, as we prepare them for the future. The authentic Montessori curriculum enables children to learn in their own way, at their own pace, through the practical application of sensory-based and self-directed activities. Our certified Montessori teacher spends significant time with each child, helping them discover unique talents and interests. Plus, a full complement of Montessori equipment offers tangible, hands-on learning opportunities to develop children’s skills and senses.
This mixed-aged classroom (for 3- to 6-year-olds) also helps children to develop social skills and challenges them to learn to work together—while being mindful of the best interests of others.
Ask your school director for additional details.
Is your child scheduled to start kindergarten? Will changes in your district impact their school year? We have a solution. Private Kindergarten is a small class with big opportunities for your child. Five full days of in-school learning, featuring nationally recognized curriculum, prepares your child for first grade.

I have been in the Early Childhood Education Field for 18 years. I have had a passion to work with the children since I was a little girl. I have three beautiful children of my own. Watching each child grow and change individually, emotionally, socially and physically every single day put smiles on my face! I helped open this building 13 years ago, and can't way to see how much more it changes in the next 13!
