Access to quality preschool is a predictor of school success. That is why when a group of Alexandria children living in public housing failed kindergarten, their moms rallied by helping form The Child & Family Network Centers (CFNC).
Today, CFNC is an Alexandria-based network of 8 free, high-quality bi-lingual preschools that provide low-income children with the tools they need to succeed in school and in life. CFNC fills a void ensuring that children have ongoing access to preschool so that they start elementary school on par with their classmates.
Beyond preschool, CFNC empowers the whole family by providing comprehensive educational and supportive services.
It works. CFNC students have developmental gains that are three times the national average and start kindergarten ready to learn.
