Hello. We just moved to Oak Park a month or so ago. Although we're really, really happy with our current daycare center situation for our almost two-year-old in the city (which is where we both work), we understand a shift in placement may help save some money and travel time for our little guy. We prefer a daycare center to other options (home based or nanny) for a number of reasons. Today, I took a look at the Goedert Center at Dominican. I'm looking for any experiences people have had with this center, as it seems to be one of our only options in the area. If you'd like, feel free to email me privately at Thanks!

Hi Moms!

My husband and I are going to be relocating to Oak Park with our 1 year old son in about a month and am looking for another family to do a nanny share.

So if anyone is interested, please email me!

Hi- We are new to Oak Park, and we are currently looking for an occasional weekend/weeknight babysitter. We have 3 children- ages 9, 6, and 3.

Thanks so much,

Has anyone experienced the OP Park District Kiddie Kamp? Thinking about signing up my 4yo twins this summer and would love to hear some feedback. Thanks!

Hello Moms of Oak Park, I am a Dad of Oak Park (mostly stay-at-home), I've probably seen a lot of you at parks with my 2 little ones.  I started a business making children's books and posters.  I would like to offer 2 free digital posters to you and your children to get your input on the product.  Please check out the site!  Proceeds benefit children in foster care at Hephzibah Home.

In the meantime, can some of you offer some insight on best areas to look for apartments in Oak Park? I'm learning Oak Park is made up of villages is this right? If so, can you all suggest some villages ideal for a family with young children? I'll be wanting to enroll my son in pre-k so maybe with that in mind? Is living near the blue line and okay area?

Hello everyone! My name is Maya and I am moving to Oak Park (most likely) this summer and am hoping to connect with other Mamas! I'm 26, I have two little ones-- a 3 1/2 yr old (boy) and an almost 1 year old (girl). My husband will be working at Rush. I'll be moving from Columbus! (Originally from Ann Arbor). I, like Jennifer will have tons of questions I'm sure and also just wanted to introduce myself!
