Services Provided To Children At Risk

Current Activities

Through A Childs's Eyes provides a Pre-Kindergarten Program to children who are considered at-risk of academic failure.

The Through A Child's Eyes Pre-Kindergarten Program provides a safe haven of instruction for the children and a source of family education for their parents in Cicero, Illinois.

The involvement of Through A Child's Eyes is due to our work with families through the Early Intervention Program and the realization that there are few resources available within the Town of Cicero that respond to the needs of children who are at-risk of academic failure without appropriate services.

Funded by a grant from the Illinois State Board of Education since July, 2005, the Through A Child's Eyes Pre-Kindergarten Program provides Pre-Kindergarten program services to 400 children who reside in Cicero, Illinois. The Pre-Kindergarten Program services are provided to 200 children in a two and one-half hour A.M. session and to 200 children in a two and one-half hour P.M. session.

The Through A Child's Eyes Pre-Kindergarten Program follows the Creative Curriculum as a framework and is provided by a highly trained bilingual staff committed to addressing the needs of the whole family and helping them achieve their highest potential. The teaching staff is comprised of Illinois Certified Type 04 teachers in a setting that is licensed by the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services.

The services provided by the Through A Child's Eyes Pre-Kindergarten Program are provided at no cost to children eligible for the program.
