Family Resource Centers

Family Resource Centers are a place for all Chicago families seeking more information or in-person support on preschool enrollment. Our friendly staff will help you answer questions about your child’s application.

For families with a preschool placement at a Chicago Public Schools site, staff at Family Resource Centers will also verify income and employment documentation. (Families with a preschool placement at a community-based site will verify their documentation directly at the site location.)

All visitors to Family Resource Centers will have access to internet and computers. If a family would like to use a library computer, the user must have a library card. Anyone with a valid ID with name, photo and Chicago address can sign up for a library card on site.

Applications will be taken 30 minutes after opening and will end 30 minutes before closing.
