Your voice is needed to create a more equitable—and fully funded—early childhood system in Illinois.

Join our Coalition

The Illinois Early Childhood Funding Coalition is a venue for you to add your perspective that will help inform, shape, and advance improvements in early childhood funding, equity, and the delivery of early childhood services.

Attend Virtual Meetings

Stay current on Illinois policies on early childhood care and education, learn how to take action in support of initiatives, expand your network, and share your views on about what's important to you. Meetings take place at 9am CT on the first Thursday of every month.

Take Action

There are many ways to act NOW to advocate for the youngest children in Illinois! You don't need to be an expert in early childhood to help young children—if you have ideas, we want to hear them! Let us know what you'd like to see in improved education and care for children age birth to 5 in Illinois.
