Child Care Services

An all-day home away from home for flourishing 3 to 5 year olds.

At It Takes A Village, our mission is to uncover the gifts and talents of students so that they can reach their fullest potential.

It Takes A Village Child Care Services was founded in the Western Humboldt Park community in 2004 and began servicing forty-seven at-risk children and their families. In just a short period of time, the staff of ITAV developed a reputation for delivering a high-quality program for parents and families that included relationships with community partners that allowed them to meet


the physical & mental health, educational, employment, housing, and nutritional needs all families served. We strive to foster a love of learning in each student that comes through our educational community. We recognize that each child has unique talents, learning styles and personalities.

My toddler’s face lights up with excitement every time we are approaching his school.  It gives me a great sense of comfort knowing that he is in great hands while I am away from him.

14 years have passed since my story with ITAV began. I am so grateful to the ITAV family for allowing my three daughters and me to be part of their great family. There have been great moments and memories that will always remain in my mind. Thank you ITAV for your support and commitment.

ITAV’s teachers are truly a third parent in raising our kids and an essential part of our family! We not only lean on them for childcare, we turn to them for emotional support as parents, laughs after a stressful day at work, and honest feedback about what our kids need that we might be missing.

After receiving my Childhood Development Associate credential through the Early Childhood Workforce program at ITAV, I realized how much I love learning about children and think I want to pursue getting my Masters in Child Development.
