Elmhurst Premier Childcare celebrated our 3rd anniversary this past summer and are super proud to continue to serve our families and community with our innovative concept of high quality childcare. Proven to sustain the most difficult and uncertain times, our beautiful center is within walking distance to the train station and all the town of Elmhurst has to offer. We know parents need quality and flexible childcare options and are thrilled to provide a much needed service right in the heart of Elmhurst.
Our number one priority is to ensure we meet every child's individual needs in a safe, secure and loving environment. Our compassionate, educated and experienced teachers nurture our children and promote a positive learning experience. We have encompassed strict and enhanced sanitizing and disinfecting policies to help prevent the spread of Covid-19 in our center. All of our classrooms have UV sanitizing machines utilized for items such as shoes, coats, hats, gloves, etc to help control the spread of germs and viruses. We are proud to state we were one of the first daycare centers to install UV air scrubbers in all of our hvac units that disinfect and remove 99.999% of germs and viruses in our air. More information on specific Covid-19 enhanced policies on our safety and faq page.
With the emphasis on connecting children to a natural environment, you'll see many unique features and conceptual design throughout our childcare center. Our flooring is sustainable and Eco friendly. All of our infant and toddler rooms have radiant heated floors, low VOC paint throughout and the entire center is designed and equipped by Community Playthings(only ONE of two centers in IL). We selected Community Playthings for many reasons, most importantly, we believe they have the highest quality product, the safest design and are the only products on the market for childcare furnishings that are LEED certified. Our hope is to teach an Eco friendly, sustainable way of life. We want to care for our children and our planet and are very excited to combine a more natural way to our childcare center.
Since we spend 90% of our time indoors, indoor air quality is an essential and integral part of a healthy environment. You'll see plants throughout to improve the overall quality of air, our supplies and toys are Eco friendly or organic wherever possible. Our crayons, markers, paint, sheets and blankets are either all organic, or Eco friendly. Recyclable materials are used wherever possible and things such as laundry detergent, dish and hand soap are Eco Certified, sustainable or organic.
