Carole Robertson Center for Learning

The Steans Family Foundation believes quality early learning opportunities will improve school readiness for North Lawndale area children. School readiness includes not only cognitive skills but also those associated with socialization, self-regulatory behavior and learning approaches.

This video highlights Carole Robertson, but one of the neighborhood’s child development centers. Their efforts exemplify the quality work around engaging with families to reach children and help them grow and learn. And as those children succeed in school, go on to college or careers and return to give back to the community, the cycle advances toward neighborhood strengthening.
