    Our two kids both spent very good years at Pilgrim. Wonderful, warm, nurturing place. Welcome to Oak Park.

    While we were Chicagoans, we were out of state when we decided to move to Oak Park. We chose Pilgrim based on phone calls to the office and crossed fingers. We lucked in to the best possible choice for our family and will feel forever grateful for outstanding program for our girls, the friends and sense of community. The staff and teachers are outstanding and the program truly nurtures bright, young minds. We're looking forward to 3 more years at Pilgrim!
