Early CHOICES and Dr. Bernie Laumann, with funding from the Illinois State Board of Education’s Preschool Development Grant Birth to 5 and the Governor’s Office of Early Childhood Development, have reviewed all the existing reports and data related to inclusion of children birth to 5 in early care and education in Illinois and released it in this strategic plan report. The report then makes recommendations on how to improve access, participation and supports related to inclusion of young children across early care and education systems in Illinois.

Both the report and an accompanying graphic are available on Early CHOICES research page.
