Logan Square

Ms. Brittni, Executive Director


Hi, Everyone.  I joined the Children's Learning Place team in 2013.  I have degrees in Criminal Justice and Sociology with studies in Early Childhood Education.  I began working with children in 2007, but soon after, realized the impact I can make on my community by aiding the growth and development of children.  The opportunity to influence a child's life, shape who they are becoming, and help make a difference with their families is deeply rewarding.

Before joining CLP leadership, I taught a variety of age groups to include a variety of Preschool classrooms and Pre-Kindergarten.

On a personal note, I am from a small town in Arkansas.  I love to eat fried okra and I have two dogs; Mya and Marley.  I am blesses to have an amazing family and fabulous friends.  In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my nieces and nephews, traveling, reading and watching sports.

I look forward to meeting and caring for your little ones. 

Mr. Alex, Director


My name is Mr. Alex.  I am excited to be the Co-Director for Children's Learning Place - Logan Square.  Prior to coming to Logan Square, I was an assistant and lead teacher at our Bucktown school.  From there, I was the Assistant Director for our Downtown school.

I am a huge supporter of taking advantage of the community resources that 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.
