New Orleans Guide to Early Childhood Education

New Orleans Guide to Early Childhood Education

For more than 25 years, Agenda for Children has worked to make help families make informed decisions about their children's early care and education. In addition to our free referral service for families, we are proud to announce our partnership with the Urban League of Greater New Orleans and Aesha Rasheed to produce the New Orleans Guide to Early Childhood Education. The Guide provides up-to-date information about licensed early learning centers, schools and other community resources.

The guide contains information about every licensed early learning center in New Orleans, including their program philosophy, quality rating, weekly costs and support for children with special needs.  Armed with this information, parents can spend less time researching information and more time deciding which center is the best fit for their child. 

Inside every guide, families will find:

Translated versions of the guide (in Spanish and Vietnamese) will be available on Agenda for Children and the Urban League’s websites in February.  Thanks to the generous support of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation and the Walton Family Foundation, the New Orleans Guide to Early Childhood Education is free and available at EnrollNOLA Family Resource Centers, New Orleans Public Libraries, community centers, community health clinics and early learning programs.

Community organizations that would like to distribute the guide to families can request copies by sending an email to Arielle McConduit at Outreach staff from Agenda from Children and the Urban League are also available to provide hands-on assistance in using the guide to families and/or agencies serving Orleans Parish families. To schedule an information session or interviews with Dr. Anthony Recasner or Erika McConduit-Diggs, contact the organization Maria Montoya at or Arielle McConduit
