Learning Bridge Early Childhood Center Receives National Award

Learning Bridge Early Education Center (formerly Child Care Center of Evanston) received the Award of excellence for Preschool Teaching and Learning from ExceleRate Illinois, the state’s quality recognition and improvement system for early learning and development providers. This is the highest level of achievement; only 6% of all for-profit and not-for-profit centers in the State have achieved this award.

“Every early learning and development provider who participates in ExceleRate Illinois makes quality a priority,” said Gail Nelson, QRIS policy director for the Governor’s Office of Early Childhood Development. “The higher the designation, the higher the programs demonstrated quality and comprehensiveness in meeting children’s early learning needs,” she said.

“This award was earned by our teachers and Program and Education Manager Ann Rappelt. They work hard every day makes our program the best that it can be,” said Executive Director Lindsay Percival.

Learning Bridge resides in a large Victorian home on the corner of Emerson Street and Asbury Avenue and has recently changed its name to more reflect its work.  “This is a family that learns together” says Ms. Percival. Along with caring, there is a focus on lifelong learning and preparation for Kindergarten.

The Center has a rich heritage that they want to build on, “generations of families have come to the Center and we do not want to forget that. Our mission remains strong,” said Ms. Percival.

“We want Learning Bridge to stay a model of best practice in early childhood education for years to come.” Together, Learning Bridge teachers and families will continue to strive for:

• Kindergarten readiness for every child.
• Outstanding, award-winning and affordable full-day early learning.
• Educational equity from cradle to career.
