Cherished Children's History
Our program's history of providing quality child care in the Mundelein area goes back over 54 years. Cherished Children began as the Nazarene Nursery School in 1962 and was located within the Mundelein Nazarene Church. During remodeling of the church, the school was moved into the Lincoln School building. Miss Carol Sternal, who was the long time director of the program, purchased it from the church in 1989 and renamed it Cherished Children Early Learning Center.
In 1995, Cherished Children moved from the Lincoln School Building into its current location at 406 Washington Blvd. in Mundelein.
Today, Cherished Children continues to maintain a Christian atmosphere, teaching children about values and moral principals, while respecting and including children and parents of all faiths and backgrounds.
