The Baby Ph. D. Childcare Network is
dedicated to developing and supporting high-quality community-based childcare for children 0-3 years old whose families live and work in the Hyde Park and University of Chicago Communities. Network members and affiliates include the Little Inspirations Child Care Center, twelve daycare homes, local families nannies, and family and friend caregivers. Many network-sponsored activities take place at the Hyde Park Neighborhood Club.
The Baby Ph.D. Childcare Network is a program of the Hyde Park Neighborhood Club. The Network has three primary goals:
1. To provide professional mentoring
and support to childcare providers and
nannies serving children 0-3 years old.
2. To provide childcare consultation, information,
and referral services to families with children
0-3 years old.
3. To host developmentally informed and
reasonably priced early childhood
Baby Ph.D. Childcare Network services are coordinated through the Hyde Park Neighborhood Club's Childcare Resource Center & Lending Library.

Each week we post new information about current Play-N-Learn activities at the Hyde Park Neighborhood Club. Whenever possible we include related developmental information and activities that you can easily repeat at home. Please take a moment to check it out!
The Baby Ph.D. Childcare Network is supported in part by a grant from the Child Care Initiative (CCI) of the University of Chicago and University of Chicago Hospitals. Additional support comes from the Hyde Park Neighborhood Club and family membership fees.
