FROM 1 TO 4

In 2014, Hometown Child Care expanded from one location to two, by opening up a center in Woodridge. Two years later, in 2016, after extensive renovations, another center in downtown Aurora was opened on Lincoln Ave. Three years after that, in 2019, a second Town Center location opened, just down the block from their first location. Joy, Lisa, Jen, and Jackie each run one of the centers.
