Dearhaven Child Care and Learning Center

Welcome to Our Center

Welcome! Early education is our passion, and our team strives to provide an inspiring environment that helps your child learn. Our STEM lab is a hands-on space that nurtures an interest in science, technology, engineering, and math, and the dramatic play areas and music room spark creativity. Your child will discover a love of books in our cozy reading nook and will have many opportunities to explore nature and discover where food comes from in the garden and child-made farmer’s market. Plus, our movement zone encourages healthy habits with dance, yoga, and more. Stop in to learn more!  We are conveniently located next to Lake Forest Place and across the street from Northwestern Lake Forest Hospital, in between Route 41 and Waukegan Road.
