Argonne Child Development Center

Early Education & Preschool That's More than Daycare

Welcome to Argonne Child Development Center where we proudly serve families of Argonne National Laboratory! This is an exciting stage in your child’s early education, and our dedicated teachers provide an inspiring place that encourages learning and development. Your child will pick up future-forward skills and learn about science, technology, engineering, and math in our STEM lab. Our reading nook will help your child discover the world of books and your child will develop healthy habits in our movement zone. Come in for a tour to learn more! Our center serves children and grandchildren of Argonne National Laboratory, Department of Energy, University of Chicago employees, joint-appointees and their contractors.
