About this Article

The first community forum on the future of the Jefferson Early Childhood Center drew both advocates for a new facility and neighbors concerned about the scope of a potential project at the Wheaton site. Roughly two dozen people attended the forum Monday night, held in a gymnasium without air-conditioning at the school -- one of the challenges in a building that has remained largely untouched since it opened in 1958 at 130 N. Hazelton Ave. Wheaton Warrenville Unit District 200 officials sponsored the forum to gauge feedback on design and funding scenarios for a new Jefferson and to collect input on other aging facilities.
