The Cherry Preschool Board was established in January of 1992 when a group of parents found themselves in need of a quality preschool embodying a warm, nurturing, developmental, nonsectarian, multicultural approach to early childhood education. Cherry Preschool grew from these parents’ dream.
A not-for-profit corporation owns the preschool as well as the building in which it is housed at 1418 Lake Street, Evanston. A board, comprised of parents, staff and community members, is responsible for the overall operation and policies of the preschool. Responsibility for the day-to-day operations of the school, including staffing, rests with the Executive Director.
Parents are welcome and encouraged to contact board members with ideas and concerns. The board meets on a monthly basis (usually the third Monday of each month); dates and times of board meetings are listed in the school’s monthly calendars.
