Communications & Social Media

How do we speak for the young children in our community? How do we ensure that they always have a place at the table where important decisions about them are being made? These are the questions we strive to address in all of our communications. We want to tell the exciting story of our children and their early childhood experiences here in Oak Park and River Forest. 

Working side by side with D.M. Burton, an Oak Park-based social media consulting firm, our feeds will keep you up-to-date with community happenings and local early childhood updates. You’ll also find all sorts of people, community partners, and information on our social media channels. Be sure not to overlook our events page. We always have an upcoming workshop for parents and caregivers, or a professional development opportunity for educators. Stay in touch using the hashtag #Collab4Kids or by tagging us!
