Welcome to The Children's Courtyard in Aurora, IL!
Our program offers Infant Care through School-Age programs. In our early childhood program, we use a proprietary curriculum that utilizes regular assessments so teachers can customize their lesson plans for the specific needs of the children in their classrooms. This unique approach allows us to meet the diverse needs of the children in each classroom and be sure that we have them well prepared for Kindergarten.
We’re committed to keeping you connected throughout the day while your child is in our care. Get access to live streaming video of your child’s classroom, plus other real-time updates, with our exclusive mobile app for families, SproutAbout.
We would love to set up a time for you to tour and find out more about your unique needs. We look forward to meeting you!
With SproutAbout, you won’t miss a thing when your child is at school with us. Take a peek at the engaging experience provided by our new app.

My name is Jodi Krachtus. I have eight years of experience in Early Childhood Education. It is important that all children have access to high quality care and education early in life when an immense amount of development occurs. My philosophy is not limited to striving towards academics, but to cherish the whole child by providing opportunities to flourish. We ensure children are provided with top quality care and education, and that is why I am excited for many years to come at this school.
