An outline of recommendations for meeting the demand of child care in Illinois

As a part of our policy agenda, Raising Illinois proposed the creation of a roadmap to meet the demand for high-quality child care in Illinois. The Infant & Toddler Child Care Roadmap, led by Start Early, explores various ways Illinois can better meet the needs of families with infants and toddlers through the lens of the state’s child care community.
