Our parent toddler classes are a great opportunity for children ages 16 months- 3 years and their parents or caregivers to learn together and see what the Nursery School is all about. The program is held in a nursery school classroom with all the equipment necessary to make for a stimulating experience for everyone. Our classes meet on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 9 am until 10:30 am.
The Nursery School has limited availability for both the 3-day and 5-day class.
For new families to apply to our program, we ask the following:
We are located in Chicago's Hyde Park neighborhood and offer a program for young children in which family participation is welcomed. We hold classes for 3- to 5-year-olds both three mornings a week and five mornings a week, as well as parent-toddler classes for children 15 months to 3 years one or two mornings a week.
Our little graduates go on to study at great neighborhood institutions like the University of Chicago Laboratory Schools, Ancona, Murray Language Academy, and Ray School!
Visit any of our classes:
3-Day Class: Monday, Wednesday, or Friday
5-Day Class: Monday through Friday
Both classes run from 9 a.m. to Noon

Q: Describe the learning environment.
A: Our caring staff, bright and spacious classrooms, and outdoor play space provide a learning environment designed to meet a variety of young children's individual needs and interests. Classrooms are organized into interest centers which encourage social interaction and include materials for fantasy and block play, expressive art, sand and water play, manipulatives, puzzles, and games. The extensive library of imaginative children's literature promotes children's love of books and reading while the outdoor playground provides more active play on challenging equipment. The daily schedule provides a balance of activity and quiet experiences.
As Chair of the KAM Nursery School Committee, I've been asked by prospective parents of our students, "Do you teach them how to read?"
