Chicago Harrison

Our Center

Welcome to Kids & Company Chicago Harrison!

Infant classrooms provide nursing areas for mothers, individualized cribs for babies to cozy up in and plenty of room for tummy-time.

Toddler, Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten classrooms are arranged with centers for children to learn by working together with their peers while developing social-emotional skills with the care and love of early childhood teachers.

Our Programs: At Kids & Company, we use an emergent curriculum and learn through play philosophy. We’re so proud of our learning programs. They include our pre-literacy and early reading, Art and Exploration, and Munchkinetics (movement) and are specially designed to engage our children in a learning process that encourages self-expression, creativity, coordination and most importantly, fun! You’ll find sign language in our baby and toddler rooms. All our children participate in music, Spanish, science & exploration and creative play throughout our day.

Does your family have an untraditional or rotating work schedule? Not to worry, we’ll work with you to accommodate your needs. We offer flexible child care and early education to help families achieve a healthy and happy work-life balance.

Meet The Director

Hello! My name is Ms. Jacobo and I am the Center Director at Chicago Harrison Kids & Company! I have been working in the childcare field for over 8 years now and have enjoyed working in every classroom. After working in the Preschool classroom for 4 years, I began my position as a Center Director. There is no better way to start your morning each day than by greeting families and receiving morning hugs and smiles from my students!

I attended Northeastern Illinois University & Morton college for my undergrad ECE studies. I have also recently obtained my MBA from Robert Morris Illinois University.

On my personal time, I love to spend time with my family and my dog Simon! One of my favorite things to do is to vacation anywhere that has a beach! I also love reading children’s books as I believe that Early Literacy Development is important (My favorite is “The Day the Crayons Quit”).

Please take some time to visit our center. I’d love to get to know you and be able to be a care giver for your little one. I know that it can be difficult to leave your child for the first time but I am certain that our passionate staff will make you feel like you’ve made the right decision!

Programs Offered

  • Infants
    • At Kids & Company, we work with your family to ensure that the transition is a smooth one. Before your child’s first day, we’ll provide information on what to expect. We’ll create an integration schedule that is right for your child and every day that your child is on the classroom, you’ll receive a daily report that let you know how your child’s day was. You’ll also be able to see him or her on our in classroom web cameras. The Director will even send you an email before the end of the day if your child has a special “wow” moment that day.

  • Toddlers
    • Toddlers learn best in the context of relationships within small groups. There are fewer distractions and children’s activities are more focused. In Kids & Company toddler classrooms, our small groups allow very young children to make connections, form caring relationships, and learn to understand other children.

  • Preschool
    • Two year olds examine all that they see as they attempt to make sense of their world. In our preschool classrooms, Kids & Company teachers interact, observe and discover what the early preschooler’s interests are and encourage further discoveries by planning activities and investigations that expand your child’s learning.
