CFNC was started in 1984 by a group of mothers living in a public housing community after they learned that 17 of their children failed kindergarten. From that modest beginning, CFNC has continuously grown both the reach and depths of its programs in response to community need. CFNC currently serves 138 children and their families in 8 preschool classrooms in Alexandria.
“It’s hard to argue with a preschool program that shows twice the student gains of other programs, especially when that program serves low-income families.”- Northern Virginia Magazine
