The Collaboration for Early Childhood is proud to publish the 2014 Early Childhood Resource Directory. This Directory is intended to connect families to the information and services that they need to support their children's successful development.


The Collaboration is a model public/private partnership that leverages the resources of more than 40 local agencies to create a community-wide system of high-quality programs and services that foster physical, cognitive, and social-emotional development during the critical first five years of life.


Our mission is to make sure that all children in our local community (birth to age five) arrive at kindergarten safe, healthy, ready to succeed, and eager to learn. Our key initiatives include the advancement of:

  • Parent Information and Support
  • High Quality Preschool for all Children
  • Professional Development for early program staff
  • Developmental Screening for all children birth to five years

Special Thanks To: GIA Publications, Inc., League of Women Voters of Oak Park River Forest, Rotary Club of Oak Park River Forest, Community Bank Oak Park River Forest, Forest Park National Bank & Trust Co., a5 inc. and Wednesday Journal, Inc. and


We also wish to express our deep appreciation to the many volunteers who provided guidance, fact gathering, proofreading, editing and other support.
