Kids Zone & E-learning

Care for and play with the kids of the Care Center in the Kids Zone while their parents receive services. Our e-learning program offers personalized educational support for local, at-risk children who are distance learning and don’t have the resources and support needed to succeed.


Kids Zone

At this time, the Kids Zone is closed due to the pandemic. Learn more about our reopening on our updates page.

The Kids Zone is a fun and safe environment where the youngest Care Center guests can enjoy being a kid, while their parents or guardians shop for food and clothes, meet with an attorney or have an appointment at the clinic. This space allows children to play and be creative, while a team of caring volunteers ensures they have a great experience and feel loved. Kids Zone serving opportunities are during normal Care Center hours.

E-learning

The Care Center’s e-learning program offers personalized educational support for local, at-risk children who are distance learning and don’t have the resources and support needed to succeed. The program is offered in partnership with area schools and operates on Willow's South Barrington campus during school hours.
