Child Care

We are registering children for available spots for Summer and Fall child care classes.

(Your child must qualify through a screening before enrolling for Preschool For All.  Screenings can be done at the child care center or through Will or Grundy County Cooperative.)  The Preschool classes follow the Reed Custer School schedule and will start in mid-August.

If you would like information on any of our programs or the registration process, or to schedule a tour of the center, call Jill @ 815-458-2787 

The Godley Park District Child Care Center offers a safe and educational environment to care for your children, while you work or attend classes. Our secure facility operates from
6:00 am to 6:00 pm, Monday through Friday.

Our Staff

Our teachers hold either Early Childhood Degrees or Early Childhood Coursework, to meet the guidelines set forth by DCFS. All staff are required to obtain at least
15 hours of Early Childhood in-service hours yearly, and are CPR/First Aid Certified. 

Classrooms Offered:
Infants & Toddlers (6 weeks to 2 years)

This program provides infants and toddlers with comfort, consistency and security by having your child remain with the same caregiver for up to 2 years. We provide
activities developmentally appropriate for each age group in our classroom to encourage physical, cognitive, social emotional and verbal development.

Busy Bees (2 - 3)

Children transition from the infant/toddler room or begin in this classroom at 2 years of age. Children in this classroom are introduced to new concepts and activities to prepare them for the early childhood classroom. Children can remain here until they are at least 3 years old and are developmentally ready to transition to the Early Childhood classrooms.

Early Childhood (3 - 5 years)

The Early Childhood class includes our preschool program and provides a climate for children to develop socially, emotionally and intellectually. We offer a consistent, challenging and creative center-based curriculum involving hands-on activities. The teachers
create learning centers in their classrooms to encourage learning through play. Activities are created to help children meet goals and objectives from the Illinois Early Learning Standards, to aid in preparing them for Kindergarten.

Contact the Child Care Center for more information and availability.
