The NEST provides high quality, free, onsite childcare for EQA students.
This is an important addition to our building in order to ensure that students who are parents can attend daily and graduate. To learn more about the program, click here.
The NET:Gentilly and the New Orleans East Opportunity Center have on-campus NESTs open and free to all students in EQA and YEP programs.
Students at the NET:Central City get free childcare through a partnership with a nearby childcare center, the Sarah Allen Child Development Center
