Supporting Families in the Early Stages



About Us

Paving the Way to a Brighter Future

 At Best Start Program District 143, we are here to help prepare your children and families for the future.  We enhance school readiness by reaching children during the critical, formative years of life, providing activities to enhance gross motor, social emotional, fine motor and many more skills. We also provide parent workshops to give information about child development and family dynamics. This is a FREE program available to families in Midlothian School

COVID-19 UPDATE: The Best Start Program has continued to provide services during the stay at home order. We have adapted to virtual parent groups and virtual home visits. We continue to provide support and case management to our enrolled families. As the mandates change, we will continue to update our practices to ensure the safety of our staff and families. If you are interested in participating in a virtual screening to enroll in our program or would like more information

please call 312-775-2843.
