VOCEL ensures Chicago's young children have the early foundation they need to be successful in school and life. Founded to bring exemplary education opportunities to underserved communities in Chicago, VOCEL helps kids develop self-regulation, language, social skills and cognition. Our innovative take on early learning is rooted in language development, parent coaching and an open, intentional teaching style. Through inquiry and play, children develop essential communication competencies, executive functions and interpersonal skills, while caregivers gain the knowledge, tools and support they need to help their children thrive.
