About Us » Welcome


Welcome to the Barbara Vick Early Childhood and Family Center and Vick Village website.

The Barbara Vick Centers are Chicago Public Schools where staff and children learn while playing together. Under the support of highly qualified Early Childhood Educators, the children’s curiosity, engagement, and joy of learning is nurtured. Our play-based, Reggio-inspired curriculum addresses all aspects of children’s development. Vick children learn to live fully, joyfully and ultimately become self-motivated problem solvers with an abiding curiosity about the world.
