A few things we’re great at

In the words of our parents…

“Northwestern Settlement’s Early Childhood Program has made a difference in my child’s life. They really care about our home life. They work with families in making it possible for your child to have a full day of education, which makes it easier for me to go to work and school so that I can make a better life for my family.” 

-K. Dixon, Parent

“This program has had a tremendous impact on my daughter. She’s learned so much over the past year and her progress and development has been quite remarkable since she entered the program. We are very grateful to the Head Start program for the support of my daughter and our family.”

-S. Avendano, Parent
