News & Resources

Check out the latest news stories on infants and toddlers, and find resources created and published by Raising Illinois members and its partners that inform our work and the work of the state’s early learning and care systems. 

Featured Resource: Community Conversations Toolkit

Raising Illinois invites you to bring together diverse individuals within your community, dive into the Infant & Toddler Child Care Roadmap's recommendations and discuss steps that can and should be taken to strengthen care for your community's infants and toddlers and those who care for them.

Community Conversations can take many shapes and forms depending on who you invite and the size of your community. It is the conversation that is critical – not the format, size or location. To help get your planning started, Raising Illinois has created a handful of helpful resources that we encourage you to check out.
