Churches with Childcare in the Southwest Suburbs

Children sometimes have a hard time sitting still in church — but thankfully, there are many churches with childcare that give parents the chance to worship without distraction. Childcare with an aspect of learning about God is also becoming increasingly popular at churches, with children getting the chance to do crafts, sing songs, and play games while learning to worship on their own. Also, a few different churches have been noted that offer one-on-one care for children with special needs. If you are looking for a church that may be a good fit for your family’s needs (or the opportunity to get in a little uninterrupted worship time), our guide is a great place to start!
