Supporting research @ RUSH

SLC is in collaboration with child development researchers at RUSH Medical Center. These researchers want to understand how face masks affect word learning in young children.  SLC families, with children ages 4-6, are invited to participate in this project.  

If you are interested in having your child participate, please complete this intake form.  All sessions will take place here at SLC, during your child's school day.  Click here to learn more, or feel free to reach out to Diana Cortez, the project coordinator, at

Staff Spotlight

Meet Donna Oline. This is Donna's 22nd year teaching at SLC! Donna teaches Pre-K in the Blue Room, but she has taught every age and in every classroom. She loves the warm, nurturing environment of SLC and her wonderful, supportive co-workers. When Donna is not teaching, she enjoys crossword puzzles, watching documentaries and taking long walks.
Fun facts: Donna's 15yr old son Sean is an SLC alum and her sister Kathryn also teaches at SLC!
