Child Care Programs

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. The center is licensed by DCFS and is routinely checked by the local health department and state fire marshal. The children are served nutritional meals, including breakfast, morning snack, lunch, and an afternoon snack.

Godley Park District is now accepting registrations for new child care (ages 6 weeks through 5th grade) and preschool students (ages 3 and 4). For more information or to set up an appointment for a tour of the Center, please phone us at 815-458-6129.

We accept DHS financial assistance to meet the needs of all qualified families.

Our Philosophy
"Your child is our number one priority."

At the Godley Park District Child Care Center, our purpose is to provide developmentally appropriate activities to enable children to reach their potential, and prepare them for experiences throughout their lives. We build positive self esteem by providing a caring, stimulating and nurturing environment where children can grow and learn to respect themselves, other children, and our world around us.

Our Curriculum
We provide a climate for children to develop socially, emotionally and intellectually. We offer a consistent, challenging and creative center-based curriculum, involving hands-on activities. Our teachers use Creative Curriculum to enable children to learn through exploring, experimenting and problem solving in their play. Our lesson plans are correlated with the Illinois State Early Learning Standards. With lower than required child-teacher ratios, children are offered more one on one time with teachers, to meet individual needs

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 inservice hours, yearly. Most of our staff members are CPR and First Aid Certified.
