Early Childhood Partners in Collaboration
E.P.I.C. stands for Early Childhood Partners In Collaboration. The mission of the E.P.I.C. program, in conjunction with the Parent Infant Education (PIE) program, is to offer children, from birth to the kindergarten door, and their families a system of high quality, well-coordinated, easily accessible services that promote the education and care of young children. That's an E.P.I.C. mission! The E.P.I.C. preschool instructional program is sponsored by Waukegan Public School District 60 and is funded through an Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) Early Childhood Education Block Grant and a Preschool-For-All initiative. E.P.I.C. preschools currently provide approximately 650 three, four, and five year-olds an opportunity to explore activity-based learning centers and to experience hands on instruction by highly qualified, certified teachers. There are three E.P.I.C. preschool sites and all students must be residents of Waukegan, Illinois.
