IAFCs Harvey-South Holland Early Learning Center is located in the Village of South Holland. This site has a total of five classrooms, each serving children 3-5 years old and accommodating 100 children. The gross-motor skills room is approximately 1,000 sq. feet and is used for large group activities, especially when the weather prohibits outdoor activities. The site also has a room used for socializations for children and families in our home visiting programs. 

All meals and snacks are prepared daily in a full-service, professional kitchen. There is also a secure, fully-equipped, and age-appropriate outdoor playground.
