About Wee Care
In our ever changing society, quality child care is of the utmost importance. The need for a safe, secure, stimulating environment is invaluable.
Wee Care Preschool is a small private preschool serving happy families within the Lakeview and Lincoln Park neighborhoods for over 35 Years!
Our family owned and operated school is small enough that individual needs are met and goals for your family achieved.
At Wee Care we offer children a warm social setting in which they can develop to their fullest potential under the guidance of qualified teachers and caregivers.
It is our goal to provide to the child and parent the best situation that will meet their personal, developmental, and academic needs within a creative and relaxed environment.
Staffing and Programming
"My family is a Wee Care family. My siblings and I all attended Wee Care at different times since the early 90's. In all that time what we love about it and what keeps us coming back is the staff and environment. When you attend Wee Care, you are treated like family. Wee Care provides a safe and loving environment for children. My hope is that one day I will be able to send my kids to Wee Care so that they can create the same memories me and my siblings have over the years.

"I have two children who attend Wee Care. The girls have been there for about one and a half years... my girls are learning more and more each day. The teachers have always treated my children with love and understanding. The owner is also one of the kindest women I have ever met... My husband and I would highly recommend this preschool to any family who is looking for a warm and nurturing place to bring their children..."

"As an educator, I was not only looking for somewhere my daughter could grow academically, but also a place to feel safe away from home; Wee Care has provided that for us. My daughter has been attending since she was fifteen months and has shown such improvement in so many areas, and continues to grow there each day! ... it is so nice to pick her up after a long day of work and see the love she is given by the Wee Care family!"

"This place is truly a gem ... My 5 year old daughter has been attending Wee Care's summer camp program and she absolutely loves it! I am impressed with how caring the staff is toward the children and parents. The owner is also very caring and accommodating to any requests you may have ... When you walk into Wee Care you can tell that all the children are happy to be there and the parents are very happy as well!"
