Come out and support The Child & Family Network Centers’ (CFNC) mission to provide free pre-kindergarten to at-risk children in Alexandria while enjoying a walk with your family and friends. Start or join a team and set your own personal goal to show your commitment to our kids and to Alexandria!
CFNC’s Relay for Pre-K supports CFNC’s free preschool program and wrap around services for Alexandria’s low income children and families. Our families make just too much to qualify for Head Start, but not nearly enough to afford private preschool. A child’s ability to be ready for school impacts their life’s future. Getting them ready for school is one of the only changes we can make in a child’s life that will change the odds that predict who they will become when they are middle-aged adults. The path that determines who a child becomes links all the way back to preschool. When you invest in CFNC, you are investing in the child, the family, and the City of Alexandria.
CFNC serves 139 children each year across 8 classrooms in the City of Alexandria. We provide free pre-kindergarten, as well as wrap around family and health services. Our holistic approach educates the whole child and family to prepare them for kindergarten. Are students and families are very diverse – 86% of our students speak a language other than English at home! To provide the best instruction, all of our classrooms are bilingual in English and Spanish. If you’d like to learn more, please visit www.cfnc-online.org.
