Community Partners Program

In addition to our four directly operated early education Family Centers, Chicago Commons partners with several sites across Chicago to deliver Head Start and Early Head Start programming to more children. We do this by providing technical assistance, coaching and training to our Partner site teachers. We also coach Partner site staff in enrollment processes, family support services, and coordinating mental health activities. Our Health, Safety, and Nutrition Coaches provide support, monitoring, and coaching at each of the Partner sites.
