Specific Needs:
The Chicago Latvian Childcare and Preschool (CLCP) -“Stariņš” is an Illinois state DCFS licensed, non-profit 501(c)(3), language immersion preschool that depends on the volunteered time and financial support provided by our families and other community members/organizations. For nine (9) years, the CLCP has provided a stimulating, high-quality environment that engages children (ages 2-6 years old) to learn about themselves and the world we live in. Our school teaches them to value languages, cultures, traditions, and new experiences through creative exploration, active play and outdoor recreation.
