About the Organization
In 1908, Jane Addams started the Mary Crane Day Nursery at Hull House, after receiving a donation of a building from Richard Teller Crane in memory of his late wife. Hull House turned the Day Nursery over to the National College of Education in 1925, and Jane Addams joined with Edna Dean Baker, president of the College, to pioneer a new way of thinking about early childhood education.
Today, the Mary Crane Center continues to serve communities in need with sites in Rogers Park, West Lakeview, West Garfield Park, and Austin. The Mary Crane Center has launched the lives of over 15,000 children and families, with the mission of promoting the comprehensive early development of children through school-readiness programs, personal enrichment activities, and family support services.
