Parents increase access to preschool

Parents created the “Walking Preschool Bus” program where they walk children to and from preschool to increase their attendance, help ensure safety and assure the little ones who otherwise could not get to preschool are able to attend. Parent teams got these “buses” up and running at 10 Chicago schools. The program increases access for preschoolers whose families may have a hard time with work schedules, limited mobility, and other real-life practicalities that are addressed by this innovative parent-led program.
