Learning Bridge Aces NAEYC Accreditation! 

We are proud to once again earn the highest commendations from the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). This extensive accreditation process examines ten standards of care, including curriculum, teaching, community relationships, assessment of child progress, health, leadership management and others. Our combined classroom average score of 99% demonstrates the extraordinary dedication of Learning Bridge staff and leadership in a field with only 8% accredited national programs serving babies and children.

"Quality birth-to-five early childhood education delivers the greatest return on investment."

- James J. Heckman, Professor of Economics at the University of Chicago, Nobel Memorial Prize winner in economics.



The Learning Bridge is honored to have been selected as a partner organization for the Kellogg Board Fellows program at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management. We’ll share more about our wonderful board fellow Vienna Ke and her project in the coming months.


Learning Bridge leadership and staff are determined to sustain the work of Evanston’s outstanding, continuously improving early learning center for all working families. This gem of a community-based organization has 70 years of history at its back and an unlimited future ahead!
