Whether it’s on the playground or at the bus stop, a common topic of conversation among parents is how challenging it has become to raise young girls. If it seems that your daughter is dealing with social and emotional issues at a much earlier age than you did, or that there are five-year-old “mean girls“ in kindergarten, it’s not just your imagination!

about the program

The Little Arrows Program we offer is unique in that we recruit girls from all over the metropolitan area of Chicago to ensure diversity. We have two groups: Little Arrows I-ages 4-6 and Little Arrows II-ages 7-8. Our curriculum is focused on Smart, Strong, Safe girls. We accomplish this via classes and experiences that allow her to become aware of who she is and how she has control over her behavior. We use a ROAR curriculum to teach her body safety and how to eliminate the possibility of sexual abuse.
