Parents

Involved and Empowered

Our goal is to prepare children for Kindergarten success while providing parents with the tools necessary to be empowered and equal partners in the educational process. We are able to achieve this goal through partnerships with Rowe Elementary School, Dominican University, Chicago Public Library, the EAT.MOVE.SAVE Program at the University of Illinois at Chicago, and the Erikson Institute Early Math Collaborative.

Volunteer

We welcome and encourage parents to volunteer their time to help out with activities at our center. Volunteering is a great opportunity to invest in your child’s education while serving others in the community. Here are just a few ways that parents can volunteer and get involved:
