The Green Bean is founded on the notion that children, their families, and societies all benefit from high-quality early childhood programs.
The Green Bean Day School & Nursery is a nurturing, eco-friendly environment for children aged six-weeks to six-years old. Family owned and operated since 2009, we are Chicago’s first Reggio Emilia-inspired early childhood education program. We are proud to offer high-quality childcare and education in a carefully-designed environment to support relationships among children, parents and educators.
Together we question, investigate, negotiate, and learn.
Long-term projects and open-ended discussions bring together language activities, social studies, science, dramatic play and artistic expression, providing young children with an environment which encourages active exploration and discovery. Together we question, investigate, negotiate, and learn. We see ourselves as teachers, caregivers and, above all, partners dedicated to working with families and helping children realize their fullest potential.
