Mission

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 and funded by Waukegan Community Unit School District #60 and hopes to be funded through an Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) Early Childhood Education Block Grant and a Preschool-For-All Initiative in the near future. E.P.I.C. preschools currently provide approximately 800 three, four, and five year-olds an opportunity to explore activity-based learning centers to experience hands on instruction by highly qualified, certified teachers. There are eight E.P.I.C. preschool sites and all students must be residents of Waukegan, Illinois
