The early childhood system is complex – comprising of different programs and funding streams. Sometimes, it may be hard to understand the early childhood system and how to best serve young children and families in Illinois. Through the generous support of the Boeing Company, Illinois Action for Children produced a series of eight videos, each providing an overview of a different part of the early childhood system. The videos are intended to help parents, individuals, and organizations that work with families and young children understand how they can best identify and access helpful services.
Each two-minute video provides a brief overview of the following programs that are part of the early childhood system.
