CPZ Aquino EarlyChildhoodEducationFair EN 111222CHICAGO – State Senator Cristina H. Pacione-Zayas and State Senator Omar Aquino are excited to host the first-ever Early Childhood Education Resource Fair on Nov. 12th highlighting available resources in their communities to improve knowledge and enrollment in early childhood education programs.  

“From my role as an education advocate to being a parent, I know firsthand how important resources are to supporting young people in our community to learn more about themselves and the world around them, and to develop necessary skills for the rest of their lives,” said Senator Pacione-Zayas (D-Chicago). “Early experiences matter, and this resource fair will help direct members of the community to the resources that are available to them – setting their kids up for academic and personal success.”

The Early Childhood Resource Fair will be held on Nov. 12th from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the McCormick YMCA, 1834 N Lawndale Ave., in Chicago.

The Early Childhood Resource Fair aims to educate families about high quality care and education resources available in their neighborhoods that will be accessible throughout the school year. Attendees will be able to visit stations providing information about developmental screenings, health resources, and early childhood resources. During the fair, there will be community giveaway for families as they complete the event passport. There will also be informational bags including age-appropriate tools for education up for grabs. The senators are looking forward to making these resources easily accessible for residents in the districts they represent.

“The development of a child’s emotional, cognitive and physical needs is the foundation for their lifelong wellbeing,” said Senator Aquino (D-Chicago). “I’m delighted to join forces with Senator Pacione-Zayas to offer a one-stop-shop opportunity where parents can get the information and resources to ensure their kids are prepared for learning. I encourage all residents of our districts to attend and take advantage of this opportunity.”
