Hi all,
We have a 4 year old and 8 month old and will need to enroll them in a preschool/daycare center.
Ideally, we'd like them to be at the same location.

Do you have any advice or experience with preschools in this area?

Thank you!

I raised my family in Oak Park, and my children attended these pre-schools/day care programs:

1. Children's Garden Montessori: Highly recommended. I'm not sure of their age requirements these days (my son was 2 and my daughter was 4 when they entered the program). They operated a private kindergarten in the same location, so children in their program could remain at the center all day without being bused around.

2. Hephzibah Children's Assn. I can't say enough good about this place. It's a multi-faceted center, with a foster care center too. They operate after-school day care in the public schools for older kids and an on-site center for kindergartners (with their own bus service to and from schools). My children went from Children's Garden (above) to Hephzibah when they outgrew CG. Great programs. Families are involved. I couldnt' have made it as a single parent without this place. Best of all, my kids have fond memories of their time there.

Hope this helps.
