Early Childhood Advocacy Day 2019 was a great success! On April 3, hundreds of early childhood advocates across Illinois traveled to Springfield to champion early childhood programs. When they reached the Capitol, they made their voices heard. This is a significant first step to raise awareness of the importance of early childhood education. From here, it is vital that we collectively keep the momentum going!

Reminder to also let us know what you thought. If you have not completed an evaluation form, please do so as soon as possible. We value your feedback and will use it to plan future Early Childhood Advocacy Days. It is also an important tool for us to follow up with legislators.
