Welcome to The Children's Courtyard Early Childhood Education Center of 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. Infant Care, Preschool, Pre-K, Before- and After-School Programs for children, ages six weeks through 12 years.
When you arrive at the center, our commitment to the children's safety begins at the door. We are closely following guidance from the CDC, as well as state and local officials and health authorities, as we take extreme care to maintain a safe, healthy school environment and to help protect your little ones in these anxious times. Once in the classroom your children will have their imaginations jump started by our dedicated staff using the award winning High Scope Curriculum, that focuses on hands on and engaged learning.
For school-age children, we offer the Prep Lab. A program designed to support K-5 distance learning. Our unique My Best Self curriculum focuses on character development, supports student's success and personal growth by learning and ending each school day with the focus on goal-setting and reflection.
Not ready to say goodbye at the door? We offer WatchMeGrow, a live streaming video tool. Our in-room cameras allow you to watch your little ones anytime, anywhere. In these uncertain times we understand flexibility is more important than ever. We offer flexible schedules to meet your changing needs.
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!
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.
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!
