As a mother of two, Christine DeLoach understands the frustrations parents face in finding suitable child care, especially during irregular hours. In trying to solve the problem for herself, she inadvertently created a new business concept that would allow parents to drop off children for supervised play sessions during unconventional hours. That concept became reality when she celebrated the grand opening of Take A Break Playcare.

“When parents have non-traditional work schedules, need to run errands, want an evening out … have their child care plans fall through or just want to take a break from the kids, child care options can be an issue, so Take A Break Playcare was born,” DeLoach explained. “[We] solve the problem by offering drop-off supervised play classes every day at times that should be convenient for families.”

Take A Break Playcare, serving children 3 months – 13 years, is open until 9 p.m. Monday – Thursday, and until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays. The facility also offers hours on Sunday afternoons. In addition to an infant nursery and a separate playroom for toddlers, the business also features arts and crafts, an air hockey table, access to tablets and video games, a sports lounge and a movie-viewing area. Children are supervised at all times by staff/teachers who have passed a background check and are trained in CPR and infant and child first-aid.

When searching for ways to finance her business start-up, DeLoach discovered small business financing firm Guidant Financial through an online search. With Guidant’s help, she used her retirement funds to invest in her new venture without incurring tax penalties — an arrangement formally known as a Rollover as Business Start-up. “I was walked through step-by-step what was expected of me and what Guidant would provide,” DeLoach said.

Take A Break Playcare, located at 2855 N. Lincoln Ave. in Chicago, is now open and accepting new clientele. To learn more about pricing, packages and amenities, call 773-661-9944, email info(at)takeabreakplaycare(dot)com or visit
