||Childcare Network of Evanston is committed to fostering a community where children of all abilities, from birth to age five, and families of all income levels, have access to high quality care and early education and arrive at school ready to succeed.
||Founded over forty years ago, Childcare Network of Evanston (CNE) is the community's resource for early childcare and education. What began as a volunteer organization in 1967 is now recognized as a national model in ensuring that every child has access to high quality programs which foster cognitive and social growth in a safe and nurturing environment.
Today, CNE reaches a broad cross section of our community with not only its resource and referral services but also its direct staffed programs. CNE's staff and board work closely with educators, caregivers and children's advocates as well as local, federal and state governments to deliver programs of the highest value to its clients. CNE's programs include:
• The Evanston Early Childhood Community Collaboration: A network of childcare, community and professional organizations working together to make early child care and education available to all children regardless of income or ability.
• Every Child Ready for Kindergarten: The Communityworks' visionary birth-to-three home visiting project.
• Strengthening Families Illinois: A DCFS program providing professional development to early childhood centers that support families and keep children safe, healthy and happy.
• Evanston Early Head Start: Collaboration with two community agencies to deliver critical birth-to-three services for 88 children and families as well as provide support and education for pregnant women.
• Learning Together Program: On-site assistance to teachers and parents in meeting the special needs of their children.
• Pre-Kindergarten Services: A program administered on-site in community early childhood programs to ensure kindergarten readiness.
• Scholarships: Community funded financial awards to assist low-to-middle income families with child care costs.
