About our Learning Center

Provena Fortin Villa Learning Center provides loving and compassionate care for infants and toddlers as well as exemplary early learning education for preschoolers and their families.  Our program assures a well-balanced curriculum that promotes the physical, emotional, creative and cognitive development for all children. 

At the root of our success is the Creative Curriculum by Catron and Allen - a best practice curriculum that is used nationwide and is aligned with the Illinois Early Learning Standards.   This curriculum provides challenging experiences that encourage your children to investigate and discover their individual learning styles.  Our goal is to facilitate your children's development of a positive self image and a lifelong love of learning. 

At Provena Fortin Villa Learning Center, your child will:

  • Form a community living and working with others
  • Actively engage in situations which require thinking, planning, experiments, problem-solving and more
  • Creatively use words, materials and art supplies to express ideas
  • Interact with a variety of children and adults - learn about our intergenerational program!
  • Develop lifelong learning skills like questioning, analysis and more
