DuPage Center opens new Bensenville Early Childhood Center
Our DuPage Center recently cut the ribbon on its new Bensenville Early Childhood Center!
Building upon the success of the new Addison Early Childhood Center, this new Bensenville center will serve infants, toddlers, and preschoolers through the Early Head Start/Head Start and Preschool for All programs to promote healthy development for each child and set the foundation for success in kindergarten.
Dr. James Stelter, Superintendent of Bensenville School District 2, spoke on behalf of the school district. Nikki Cameron, Director or Early Childhood Education for Metropolitan DuPage, spoke on behalf of Metropolitan and discussed the vision, as well as the collaborative process between Metropolitan and the school district. Both speakers highlighted the dream of providing a continuity of care model, which serves children ages 0 through elementary school, as a result of the partnership.
Nicole Neuhalfen, Site Supervisor of the Bensenville Early Learning Center cut the ceremonial ribbon, held by Christy Poli, Birth to Three Coordinator for Bensenville School District 2; Dr. Stelter; Nikki Cameron; and Darby Pool, Director of School Readiness for Metropolitan DuPage.
