Programs: caring, high-quality, free education and related services in their own neighborhoods in order to prepare them for success in school and life.

The Child & Family Network Centers (CFNC), formerly the Alexandria Community Network Preschool,is a community-based, non-profit organization started in 1984 when a group of mothers, living in a public housing project, learned that all of their children had failed kindergarten. With the help of local churches, they organized and started a preschool. Today, CFNC serves approximately 200 at-risk children and their families each year at twelve accredited preschools in low-income neighborhoods of Alexandria and Arlington.

In addition to our preschool program, we offer comprehensive services for children and bilingual family support for parents and neighborhood residents including: parenting education, support groups and workshops, individual and group counseling, advocacy, and adult literacy.
