Two Convenient Locations

Our Hanover Park location opened its doors in 2023, while our Oak Park center has served the near-west suburbs and Chicago for over two decades.

Learning Doesn't Just Begin with Preschool

At ABC Toon Town II Educational Center, our program and research-based curriculum focus on the developmental needs of every child, from infancy through age 5. We designed classroom environments that are filled with love, support, and resources to promote maximum development and learning opportunities.

Our Mission

To empower and motivate young learners to develop a positive sense of self through the use of developmentally appropriate practices. We concur with the early childhood philosophers Piaget and Vygotsky that children thrive and learn through play, and positive teacher interaction and facilitation. Through a combination of structured play, a balanced curriculum, and a warm, nurturing environment, our program is designed to help the children acquire the skills they need to become successful lifetime learners.


Children can be enrolled in either of our centers at any time if a position is available.  CLICK HERE to connect with a member of the staff to learn about what opportunities exist for your child at either of our childcare centers.


The Creative Curriculum®

A “hands-on” approach to learning where the children explore and learn in small and large group settings, as well as individually.  To learn more about our curriculum, please CLICK HERE.

Hours of Operation

We know that it is not easy being a parent and having extended hours to support our families is essential.  Our normal hours of operation are Monday – Friday from 7:00 AM until 5:30 PM daily. 

In Partnership With Parents

We believe that parents are their child’s first teacher, and we are here to facilitate and partner with them to ensure their child’s needs are met. Communication, relationship-building, and promotion of family involvement is part of our core values at ABC Toon Town. In addition to providing parent education workshops, we provide several types of opportunities for our families to be actively involved in their child’s growth and development at our program. Parents receive a monthly newsletter from the Director, as well as a newsletter from the child’s classroom teacher, which details the theme for the month, planned activities and other pertinent information.

Parent/Teacher Conferences are held three times per year: mid-summer, early Fall and late Spring. Assessment and progress reports are sent home twice per year.

We are deeply engaged with our parents and maintain an active volunteer parent advisory committee. The parent advisory committee is a group of parent representatives committed to fostering a partnership between fellow parents, school staff, and administration with the goal of building a strong community within ABC Toon Town.
