Tri-Con Child Care Center has been providing affordable, high-quality early care and education for children of local, low-income families for over 45 years. Tri-Con offers a year-round, full-day preschool, an after-kindergarten enrichment program, and a summer camp program. Through developmentally appropriate experiences that are based on the Illinois Early Learning Standards, students are prepared for a successful school journey. Fees are based on a sliding fee scale with 100% of all children being subsidized through either partial state funding or Tri-Con’s own Scholarship Program. Highland Park Community Foundation’s grant provides scholarships to local children whose families do not qualify for state funding but are in need of high-quality, subsidized early childcare and education.
