Ladybug & Friends has several locations around Chicago, each of them providing a welcoming environment for early childhood development with plenty of natural light, vibrant colors that inspire imagination and creativity, and age-appropriate furnishings. Each learning center has separate quiet and active areas to foster optimal spaces for different learning modes, and access to outdoor space that promotes play, socialization, and an appreciation of the world around us.

LadyBug & Friends also has a demonstrated commitment to child safety, with each facility being equipped with a secure entry and every single room monitored via security camera. Between the quality of the facilities and the well-trained, committed staff, you can rest assured that your child is in good hands.

LadyBug & Friends’ nutritional offerings surpass those of many other daycare facilities, as your child will receive an organic breakfast, lunch and snacks that are carefully selected to meet early childhood health needs. In fact, the current daycare menu has been approved by a Clinical Nutritionist and Diplomate of the American Board of Clinical Nutrition, putting your child on the path to develop healthy eating habits that will serve them well throughout their lives.

Every day at LadyBug & Friends (weather permitting) features plenty of time outdoors in the fresh air during supervised playtime on secure, age-appropriate playground equipment. All locations also offer walks to nearby attractions, such as museums, libraries, and parks, instilling a sense of community and an awareness of their broader world.

But what truly separates Ladybug & Friends from other providers is their proprietary curriculum, uniquely tailored to encourage growth across a range of intellectual and emotional areas at an age-appropriate pace. Importantly, the curriculum is designed to be flexible and meet the unique needs of each individual child, with the goal of instilling a love of learning and a sense of emotional and social well-being that will prepare them for the years ahead.

The curriculum is rich with immersive, hands-on opportunities that lend themselves to fun and creativity while also imparting valuable life skills and lessons. This ‘playful learning’ approach encourages self-confidence and self-expression, while also furthering social skills, early literacy, and mathematical aptitude. Collectively, these create a strong foundation for their lifelong pursuit of knowledge.


As with any educational institution, the key to Ladybug’s success is their teachers. Each team member is carefully selected for their demonstrated commitment to providing quality care and education, meeting and exceeding DCFS requirements.

Furthermore, Ladybug is constantly helping its staff improve and grow, offering a comprehensive professional development and training program for all their teachers to ensure excellence and consistency across all facets of their programming. This dedicated approach ensure your child receives the best possible learning experience from a committed staff that is invested in their own learning and development as well as your child’s.

Ladybug’s staff share a deep passion for early childhood development, presenting a positive role model that helps them form positive relationships while guiding them towards good decision making and behavior. No matter your child’s needs, each LadyBug staff member is committed to finding the right approach to meet them.

Finally, all Ladybug & Friends locations feature convenient parking, for easy logistics when it comes to dropping off and picking up your child. Your child’s tuition for Ladybug’s daycare and early education programs includes educational programming, as well as the aforementioned nutritional program and much more. Tuition varies based on whether you choose full-time or part-time attendance schedule for your child, and there is a 10% discount for siblings.

My son just started going here and so far he’s loving it! I can see how happy he is when I pick him up. I love the app to see pics of him thorough out the day as well. My son has Ms. Cindy as his teacher and she is very attentive and has helped my son transition into daycare smoothly. Everything is VERY clean and organized which I love. The price is not bad at all considering all the care that goes to your child. They have an open door policy (as long as it doesn’t interfere with 1-3 nap time) and you can call to check in on your little one at any time. Currently, they do not offer a playground area, but they do have a buggy and take the children for a walk outside (weather permitting). I love this Daycare for my son so much!read more

This location and the people that run it are wonderful!Location: state of the art, brand new, super clean and built with children in mind. The classrooms are large with lots of natural light. A playground is in development. Ladybug has spared no expense in building its newest location.Staff: Mr. Ryan has over a decade of experience in childcare and with Ladybug. He runs a wonderful shop. Our time with him was informative and left us with true confidence for the care our son will receive. He leaves no stone unturned and has high standards for the teachers at the school.The program: the Ladybug program fulfills everything we were looking for. Healthy meals and snacks. Curriculum based play. Small teacher to student ratios. Easy and consistent communication methods including an app that tells us about our sons day and includes pictures of him during the day.We could not be more happy to join the ladybug community. It is truly a child focused more

I am taking my son since the first day of opening. We tried different places around the area and none of them compare to Ladybug. The place is brand new, very spacious and bright. Ryan was very helpful and gave us all the information we needed. Ms Nora and Ms Sandra are taking great care of my son. We couldn’t be more happy with Ladybug!The daily updates with pictures included are very nice also. I highly recommend the place because I can leave my son for the whole day and be sure he gets all the attention and care he more
