Illinois is home to nearly one million children from birth to kindergarten entry. Nearly half are children who are experiencing complex problems that require more than a programmatic approach; it requires a community systems development approach. Across Illinois, local communities have formed collaborations to leverage resources, build capacity, and support community planning that improve outcomes for young children and families. This webinar will address the what, how and why of early childhood collaborations.
