Who We Are
Since 2019, Teeny Tiny University has opened its doors to families in Chicago, to foster a nurturing, safe, and loving environment for children of all backgrounds.
As a minority and woman-owned early learning center founded by Executive Director, Yolanda E. Wofford, Teeny Tiny University is a family of skilled educators with years of leadership, training, and advocacy in early childhood education. Rest assured, your children are in the exceptional care of licensed and experienced teachers proudly upholding local, state, and federal childcare standards.
At Teeny Tiny University, we’re more than an early learning care center, we’re a launching pad for the city’s next generation of changemakers. We aim to help our children develop, discover, and grow into their unique selves– emotionally, creatively, and intellectually.
We believe in the power of community and know that our children need a strong foundation of parents, teachers, and peers to cheer them on at every stage of their lives.
At Teeny Tiny University, our mission consists of providing a warm and nurturing environment where children feel safe. Our unique Early Learning Center offers various activities that are specifically designed to encourage each child’s growth. Through cooperative play and creative activities, kids reach their social, emotional, and physical milestones naturally and with ease.
Every child matters.
Every child needs room to flourish.
Every child wants a caring support system.
Every child deserves access to life-changing resources.
I am very grateful for this daycare, Miss Yolanda was very helpful with the entire process of enrolling. She really works with you and make you feel very comfortable on your decision to leave your child in their care. The daycare is very clean and organized, also you don’t miss a beat on what your child is doing through out the day with the amazing Procare app. No complaints!
