Welcome to the Collaboration for Early Childhood’s Monthly Newsletter.
In the spirit of the New Year, we are excited to kick off 2021 with the new Collaboration newsletter. Every month, we will update you on the work that the Collaboration is doing to support our children here in Oak Park and River Forest. We’ll also share timely early childhood topics that are on our mind when we think about the little ones in our community.
For all of you who are familiar with the Collaboration’s collective impact model, you know that we work to engage the whole community in our support of the preschool experience. In fact, we couldn’t do this work alone, even if we tried. Every day we are inspired and driven by our community partners. In this space, we will also spotlight our partnerships and the ways that our peers are working with children and providing supports to the people who care for them.
Our newsletter is divided into sections that correspond to our key work: Community Engagement, Early Learning, Family Engagement, and Health and Development. You’ll also see what we’re looking forward to in our Upcoming Events section. We are excited to see what 2021 brings and invite you to join us on the journey.
