Educare Chicago

Providing high-quality education and care, and a stimulating learning environment for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years.

Educare Chicago was founded by Start Early (formerly known as the Ounce) in 2000 as an innovative early learning program serving infants, toddlers, preschoolers and their families on Chicago’s South Side.

Educare pairs the latest research with intensive family engagement to promote school readiness and help families work towards their goals. A pioneer and innovator in early childhood education from the very beginning, Educare Chicago has inspired the development of the Educare Learning Network, a nationwide network of birth-to-age 5 schools.
