Childcare Network of Evanston recently celebrated families in their Head Start programming with a family picnic on Aug. 9 to send off those children heading to kindergarten.   

Since 1970, Childcare Network of Evanston, or CNE, has been committed to making sure all children in the community, from birth to age 5, have access to high quality early education and childcare.  As part of this mission, CNE and four Evanston preschool programs – School for Little Children, Cherry Preschool, Covenant Nursery School and Unity Preschool – provide a number of full scholarships to eligible families enrolled in CNE’s Head Start home visiting program. 

Expanding access to these types of educational opportunities plays a critical role in ensuring that all children in our community enter kindergarten ready to learn and succeed, CNE administrators say.

CNE provides no-cost early childhood education to 234 eligible children each year and connects more than 300 children and families to a variety of critical resources, including childcare subsidies so families can afford quality early education and care for their children, and mental health and other therapeutic services for young children and families impacted by trauma.
