Robert W Rolek Community Center


The Child Development Center (CDC) has its own wing inside the Community Center. It maintains a separate pick up/drop-off area and key cards must be used to access classrooms.

This is our main location. Inside you will find 7 bright, colorful and well-equipped classrooms, small class sizes taught by professional and qualified teachers, an indoor gym, and nut-free classrooms. Students will also have access to enrichment programs, acres of wooded parkland, and visits to our on-site museums: The Prairie Grass Nature Museum and Children's Neighborhood Museum.

Site II, Child Development Center


Site II stays locked when children are present, except for drop off and pick up. Visitors must use the doorbell/intercom system to obtain entry.

Site II was originally a large 2-story cedar home with a basement and in-ground pool. The park district renovated the house, and filled in the pool to create additional classroom space. Today, the east end of the facility accommodates 4 classrooms (for half day preschool), and office space, kitchen and large waiting area. The west end houses the Ranger Police. There is a fenced play area in front with slides, climbers and miscellaneous equipment. In back, there is a playground.
