Group Description

FYI: This page is not used for current conversations. We have moved to a private Facebook group for easier communication and planning but keep this group open in case new families stumble upon CHIPS in an online search. After reading the info below, if you would like to be included in our Facebook group, please message me, Tracey Becker, via email: mctrickyb@sbcglobal.net
CHIPS_Illinois (Chicagoland Homeschoolers Inclusive Play & Support) is an inclusive, secular group for all types of homeschooling families. Whether you're unschooling, using a more eclectic approach, employing an educational program like Montessori or Waldorf, or curriculum like Sonlight, you'll feel welcome at CHIPS. Our families come from Plainfield, Naperville, Aurora, Joliet, Romeoville, Downers Grove, and other Chicago area suburbs. Our goal is to provide opportunities for social interaction and creative play for our children as well as a place for parents of different homeschool philosophies to meet and interact. Our only request is that we respect each others philosophical and religious differences.

Our group meets every Tuesday from 10:00 to 3:00 at Fellowship Chapel in Bolingbrook: 308 West Robinhood Way. We are currently offering the following clubs: History and Science for Independent readers from ages 6-11; Teen Civics class; Little Ones Literature Club for 3-6 year olds; Gym Club for all ages; Art for all ages; Sign Language for all ages. The clubs' fees run from $2 to $24 per class. We also request that each member family donate $5 each week towards the rent we pay for our space. Of course, we never require our members to attend the clubs. We have plenty of room for those who just want to meet for unstructured play and fellowship.

Once you join CHIPS, please plan to attend one of our events soon as we would love to meet every one of our members.

Please come and join us as we grow, learn and play together.
