As a previous employee at Hometown I would not recommend sending children there. The staff is great but the owner is horrible and so are her daughters! They only care about themselves and children. They use the other staff and take advantage of them as much as possible. The rooms are almost always over ratio. I must agree with a previous review the owner is always defensive when approached with a concern or problem. Like I said before the other staff is awesome and yes THEY do care about the children under their care! I hope they get out soon...

Hometown Child Care and Learning Center puts learning through play as their first priority. The center was recently rated by the State of Illinois Quality Counts program and received a Star Rating for Quality based on curriculum, environment, staff educational backgrounds and the overall high quality of the program. They welcome drop in tours!

The staff is very caring and the curriculum is filled with wonderful learning experiences for the children. They are located on a beautiful park with a water pad for the children in the summner. The learning experiences are wonderful starting in the Infant room all the way to School Age. The staff is stable and has not changed in over 2 years. My child is now 4 and has been there since she was 6 weeks old. I love it. The person who complained about televisions is wrong. The televisions are only used for educational videos such as Baby Can Read, Baby Signing TIme and the like. There is no tv hook up at the center. The Toddlers enjoy dancing and singing videos made for children. The school age room has science videos and music.

In reply to the person who was concerned with televisions in the Hometown Child Care infant room. They are NOT televisions but are DVD players. There is no television hookup anywhere in the center. The infant room uses this to show Baby Signing Time videos, the My Baby Can Read video program, to play soft music and other educational material.

I would never send my child to Hometown Child Care center based on a number of reasons.
I think any child care center that has TVs in the infant care room is deplorable. Although the American Association of Pediatrics research on television viewing in infants is inconclusive, I believe in any child care situation, the caregivers should be interacting with the children regularly with an age-appropriate curriculum.
I have also found the owner to be unprofessional and discourteous every time I have spoken with her. She handles issue resolution poorly and immediately becomes defensive and argumentative.

Our son loves going to this childcare, he has really come out of his shell since we started sending him here. The staff is friendly and they accommodate your requests. The center is clean and family owned and operated which means they really do care about you and your child!

We absolutely adore Hometown Childcare. We've been Hometown residents for 2 years now, and our daughter has been at the center since she was 3 months old. We've had nothing but wonderful experiences there. The hours and schedules are flexible and the staff cares for the children like their own. Our daughter is excited to go every morning and loves her teachers and toddler friends. We looked everywhere to find a place where we felt comfortable sending our precious baby, and we were relieved to finally find somewhere that felt warm, welcoming, and fun.

PROS: Great location, safe, flexible, great prices, caring staff
CONS: Staff turnover in some rooms is high, so it can be hard for kids who get attached to their teachers
