The Children's Room in the Daley Center is a special place for children who must be witnesses or whose parents must appear in court. You need not worry about your children while they are in The Children's Room. They can only leave with the person who brought them.
If you are the parent of a child witness, or if you are involved in litigation in a courtroom in the Daley Center, please allow your child to wait in a bright, comfortable, child-centered place. The Children's Room can accommodate a limited number of children aged 4-12.
Children's Waiting Rooms are also available in District 2 (Skokie) District 4 (Maywood), District 5 (Bridgeview) and District 6 (Markham).
It is scary when children must go to court and tell about bad things they have seen or which have happened to them. It is frightening when their parents are angry and are fighting in court. It is worse when these children must wait in stuffy courtrooms, forbidding interview rooms, in crowded hallways with nothing to do.
