Jane Addams Hull House Association opened the first Infant & Toddler Center in a Chicago Public high school in 1991. Over the years, we have assisted more than 400 teen parents with childcare and have enabled them to stay in school. Our Centers serve two at-risk populations: teen parents and their infants.

Teens experience tremendous success because our programs enable them to stay in school and learn how to be effective parents. The majority of our parents do not have any subsequent pregnancies while in our programs, and go on to graduate and enroll in 2-year vocational schools or 4-year colleges.

Teen parents are required to attend parenting classes each semester and spend one study hall period daily in the Center with their child. Case management, job counseling, tutoring and college planning services are also provided to teens.

While the teens are in class, our experienced early childhood professionals offer quality developmental and educational experiences to children ages 6-weeks to 3-years-old. Our centers provide a cognitively stimulating environment for infants and toddlers.

Orr is a National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) accredited program. NAEYC is dedicated to improving the well-being of all young children, with particular focus on the quality of educational and developmental services for all children from birth through age 8.


In addition to our high school centers, we provide care for infants and toddlers through our Early Head Start network of licensed child care home providers. Children ages 6-weeks to 3-years-old receive a comprehensive early childhood experience in a licensed home setting. Parents of these children also participate in an intensive prevention initiatiative that provides parenting education and home visiting.
