Founded in 1976, the Carole Robertson Center for Learning is dedicated to nurturing, supporting, and strengthening family life through quality child, youth, and family development programs. The Center serves Chicago families and facilitates community advocacy on child and family issues.
The Center is named in memory of the four children who were tragically killed in the 1963 Birmingham church bombing. Today, the Center serves more than 700 children, ages 6 weeks to 18 years, and their families daily through high quality, comprehensive curricula, operated out of three sites located in Chicago's west side.
Current programs include center-based and home-based child development programs for children from birth to five years of age; school age and youth programming for children and teens through age 18; comprehensive family case management and social service support; adult education and community training; and embedded program enhancements including a dual language initiative, music education, family literacy, family health education, and a formalized volunteer program. The Carole Robertson Center has shared its model both locally and nationally.
