In the fall of 2010, Smart Love Family Services opened The Natalie G. Heineman Smart Love Preschool, a play-based preschool for children ages 3, 4 and 5 that includes a New Mom’s Group and Toddler Explorations!, a unique early school experience for parents and tots ages 12 – 36 months. Parents interested in learning more about the program, curriculum and the Smart Love philosophy are encouraged to attend the Open House and tour Smart Love's facility, a restored historic mansion with expansive gardens on Chicago's north side.
Kelly Perez, the Preschool Director, will be on hand to answer parent's questions and provide details about this new school.
The Natalie G. Heineman Smart Love Preschool is based on the Smart Love philosophy which was developed by two highly respected experts, Martha Heineman Pieper, Ph.D. and William J. Pieper, M.D. The preschool provides a setting that promotes children’s long-term academic success by strengthening children’s social and emotional health and inspiring their intellectual creativity through play-based learning. Supported by the latest child development research, Smart Love has been successfully applied by trained professionals in a broad range of settings for over three decades.
