The Carole Robertson Center for Learning educates, enriches, and empowers children and families through comprehensive child and family development programs. As we embark on the Center’s first capital campaign, we invite supporters to make a lasting impact and further our mission through investments at our Little Village site.

The Center’s Little Village campus (2929 West 19th Street) holds a special distinction among our service area locations as our largest flagship site. At approximately 40,000 square feet, the facility currently includes 23 classrooms serving more than 300 children and youth.
We understand that children learn best within the context of a safe classroom climate. To that end, we work to ensure that our spaces are warm and welcoming high-quality learning environments, where social-emotional learning is the foundation to every child’s holistic development and long-term success, with a keen focus on kindergarten readiness, third grade reading, and transition to middle and high school.

The Carole Robertson Center for Learning has established a $10 million goal for fundraising for the capital enhancements at the Little Village location. This will enable the Center to continue to be a beacon of best practices, innovation, and impact in the Little Village community.


The following spaces will be upgraded through the support raised by the capital campaign:

• 23 classrooms for children and youth (6 weeks – 17 years of age) with technology and infrastructure upgrades to promote learning
• Therapeutic/wellness room
• Multi-age library

• Music room
• Gymnasium
• Health office
• Full-service kitchen
• Administrative offices and conference rooms

• Professional development, planning, and staff lounges
• Community multi-purpose room
• Children’s and all-gender restrooms
• Storage rooms and laundry room
• Play and recreation space for all ages


After launching our campaign in September 2022, the Carole Robertson Center has already made tremendous progress toward our overall goal, with $4.25 million raised to date against a $10 million goal. Together, we can create lasting change for Chicago’s future. We welcome the opportunity to discuss the capital campaign and pursuant gift recognition opportunities in more detail, including opportunities to name spaces in the renovated facility.

Since 1976, the Carole Robertson Center for Learning has been dedicated to educating, enriching, and empowering children and families through comprehensive child and family development programs.
