The early years are a critical period in a child's learning and development and the impact on attendance and engagement for our young learners has been strongly impacted by the pandemic. Student attendance in early learning environments has become a critical data point for serving the needs of young learners, is a predictor of a successful transition to kindergarten and important in creating a positive trajectory for student success and engagement in Kindergarten and beyond. During this interactive webinar participants will learn more about the important changes that have occurred in Illinois regarding attendance in Pre/K (community based and districts). Participants will also receive resources to help them promote an understanding that every student counts and every day matters.
