Why Walk?
CFNC's Relay for Pre-K supports CFNC's free preschool program and wrap around services for Alexandria's low income children and families. Our families make just too much to qualify for Head Start, but not nearly enough to afford private preschool. A child’s ability to be ready for school impacts their life’s future. Getting them ready for school is one of the only changes we can make in a child’s life that will change the odds that predict who they will become when they are middle-aged adults. The path that determines who a child becomes links all the way back to preschool. When you invest in CFNC, you are investing in the child, the family, and the City of Alexandria.

More about CFNC
CFNC serves 138 children each year across 8 classrooms in the City of Alexandria. We provide free pre-kindergarten, as well as wrap around family and health services. Our holistic approach educates the whole child and family to prepare them for kindergarten. Are students and families are very diverse - 86% of our students speak a language other than English at home!
