Management: Downtown

Ms. Maria, Director


Hi, my name is Ms. Maria, Director at Downtown Children's Learning Place.  I have been a member of the CLP team since 2014 and look forward to many more.  It has been a pleasure watching all the children and families grow over the years.  It's always a nice surprise when previous families stop in for a visit.

I have my degrees in Psychology and sciences.  My studies also include Early Childhood Education.  My love for children has driven me to Early Childhood Education.  Additionally, I adopted a medically fragile daughter whom passed from heaith complications at the age of 3 and it's her memory that drives me to always be caring and patient with our young students.

I am happily married and our son was born in 2018.  I look forward to watching him grow and learn here at Children's Learning Place.

Mr. Alex, Assistant Director


My name is Mr. Alex.  I am excited to be the Assistant Director for Downtown Children's Learning Place.  Prior to coming to Downtown, I was an assistant and lead teacher at our Bucktown school.  I am a huge supporter of taking advantage of the community resources that downtown Chicago has to offer.  In addition to working with families of CLP, in my free time I also like to perform comedy and perform in a few family-friendly shows throughout Chicago.  I look forward to working with all of our families and I hope to become a trusted resource for all of your early childhood education needs.
