"Partnering with parents and community, we provide a strong educational foundation to prepare children for future success."


Responding to the community needs, our first site, Grant Works, opened in 1978, serving twenty-eight children. Since then, other sites have been opened for programs serving children six weeks to ten years of age and their families. We work closely with and provide support for School Districts #98, #99, #100 and #201. In addition, Family Literacy workshops and lending libraries are provided. Parent and child drop in centers have been opened to provide activities, workshops and seminars. Currently we are serving over 870 families.

We provide a warm, loving, nurturing and stimulating atmosphere for children. We respect the child as an individual, unique and special.

We help children enjoy life and learn to accept themselves as well as others.
