About Family Focus

At Family Focus, you have the choice of either home-based or center-based programming services.

Our home-based programming establishes a customized individual family support plan with every family entering the program and continually tracks progress based on each family’s specific goals. Activities guide parents and children in sharing and learning activities that improve gross motor, language, fine motor, social and emotional skills.

Our center-based programs operate out of two locations. Our Hyde Park location is located at 5467 S University Ave, Chicago, IL 60615  and our South Shore location is located at 7037 S Stony Is Ave, Chicago, IL 60649. Our center-based programs offer individualized lesson planning from credentialed teachers, as well as classrooms filled with educational resources and learning tools, featuring age-appropriate centers for science, literacy, block building and construction, dramatic play and clay, paint, sand, and water exploration.

For more information please call 773-496-5413 or fill out our enrollment form and someone from our team will contact you within 48 business hours regarding your eligibility.
