What is the Formula for Future School Success?

Welcome to Smart Love Preschool

Smart Love Preschool is a fully-licensed, not-for-profit school serving children ages 12-months-old to 6-years-old. We offer a play-based curriculum, focused on creating a positive relationship with learning in a nurturing environment.

 

At Smart Love, we foster children’s social and emotional development as the portal for their academic growth and success. All learning—from how to get along with others to finding joy in learning new things—flows from the well-being of the child. Widely considered by child development experts around the world as key to success in school, social and emotional development translates into having:

 

Confidence: A willingness to ask for help when needed but not because of feeling incompetent     

Curiosity: A long-lasting desire to learn that doesn’t depend solely on subject matter      

Love of Learning: An ability to enjoy the process of learning and not just the grade

Resiliency: A capacity to stick to the learning goal despite difficulty level, setbacks and confusion

Focus: An ability to study despite feeling tired or being distracted

 

Our students move on to elementary school with a desire to learn, a sense of confidence in the classroom and a resiliency that keeps them engaged in learning.

Smart Love Preschool offers financial aid for eligible families. Please contact us at 773.665.8052, ext. 1 or contact@smartlovefamily.org to learn more.
