In 2018, the Infant Welfare Society of Evanston (IWSE) and School District 69 partnered to create Ready For Success, an innovative national model for early childhood education, offering families comprehensive resources and support. Ultimately, Ready For Success will provide District 69’s youngest children with essential resources and services during the early, critical periods of childhood development, and will lay the foundation for their continued success and a bright future. At the same time, Ready For Success (RFS) hopes to lead by example and serve as a model for school districts across our nation.
