On Friday, August 9, Mayor Lori Lightfoot visited Chicago Commons’ Nia Family Center in Humboldt Park. Joined by Alderman Walter Burnett Jr. and representatives of the Chicago Department of Family and Support Services and Chicago Public Schools, Mayor Lightfoot encouraged parents and guardians to enroll their children in early education programs. This year, the city will increase its investment in early learning programs by $76 million to provide all families, regardless of zip code, with options for high-quality early education.
Thank you Mayor Lightfoot for your visit to Chicago Commons and for your investment in early education programs based on quality, equity, and community need. These investments will set children on the right path towards kindergarten readiness and lifelong success.
