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!
During these unprecedented times, The Children's Courtyard is taking numerous health and safety steps in order to combat the Coronavirus. We are taking the temperature of staff, children and visitors before entering the building. Our entire staff is wearing face mask all day and this is also required for anyone that enters our building. We are not combining any classrooms to prevent the spread of germs and the children remain with the same teachers all day. We have hand sanitizer located at every classroom door that is to be used before handling door knobs and we also have hand sanitizer located through out our common areas. We have heightened cleaning/sanitizing procedures which includes sanitizing all high touch points, including toys/equipment. Parents can be reassured that their child is in good hands by observing their child using our live streaming camera app called WatchMeGrow.
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.
We offer a full-day program for school-age children and assist with e-learning. We also have our own program, Prep Lab, which was designed by our education department to help support a more academic program.
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!

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.
