Welcome to Our School

Hello, and welcome to The Children's Courtyard here in Plainfield, IL! My name is Tracy Gamino and I'm the director of The Children's Courtyard. I have over 20 years of experience in the Early Childhood field and enjoy putting it into practice everyday. I have been a leader here for five years and I am looking forward to many more!

Our educational daycare offers programs for children ages six weeks through 12 years in our Infant, Toddlers, Two's, Early Preschool, Preschool, Pre-k, half day Kindergarten and Before- and After-School programs. We also offer a Preschool and Pre-k select 3 hour program. Our unique curriculum is tailored to each individual child's needs and interests.

We have a very unique building with a full size Gymnasium for those rainy, cold or hot days, and a STEAM Courtyard that the children visit daily for 30 minutes.

The talented staff members at our school have many years of experience in the field and partake in various training opportunities throughout the year. Many of our staff have been with us since our school opened.

Please stop by for a tour to learn all about our incredible early education programs here at The Children's Courtyard in Plainfield!
