One Hope United will open the doors to the Joliet Early Learning Center in the summer of 2014. The fully renovated center will be located at 500 Parks Ave., and will provide high quality early childhood education programs for children infancy through school age up to 12 years old. This opportunity was made possible through a grant awarded to One Hope United from the State of Illinois.
The new center will be one of 12 One Hope United early childhood education programs in the Chicago metropolitan area offering a safe, nurturing, learning environment for children. Each center utilizes a unique “learn by doing” approach that allows children to explore and understand the world around them. All One Hope United centers are staffed by early childhood professionals who are passionate about developing lifelong learners.
