Lil Bebe Academy is a Licensed Family Daycare located in the state of Illinois. We have been in operation since 2008.
- We operate in a clean, safe and very enriching atmosphere. Children love to come to Sue’s house because they have gained trust and knowledge about our nurturing ways. They know they are respected and loved. Our mixed group environment allows younger and older children to mutually benefit from many life skills. The younger children learn faster by modeling the older children, they acquire pro-social skills and autonomy. The older children are eager to act as role models or as an older sibling by exhibiting leadership roles like; teaching, helping and encouraging the younger children to be independent.
- We pride ourself with the belief that the formative years are an important stage in a child’s brain development. Research has shown that the first five years are important in a child’s live, especially their contact with caregivers. It is during this stage that children develop personalities that last a lifetime. When caregivers respect and provide support for children they develop self-confidence and emotional stability.
- Suzette the owner has a 4-year degree in Child Development Psychology with a Preschool Concentration. This degree and years of experience with children have given her a wealth of knowledge about children development and learning. She is always hungry to improve and enrich the children’s lives. The curriculum at Lil Bebe Academy is developmentally appropriate based on NAEYC practices.
- Every child develops at their own pace and reaches their milestone at different times. It is, however, not surprising to find a two-year-old in our play school counting to 20, identifying many colors, shapes, engaging in calendar time, mastering phonemic awareness, and possible showing an interest in using the potty. We stimulate, enrich and propel children for kindergarten while they acquire life skills.
We welcome infants, toddlers and preschoolers.
