Detail:

In this hands-on workshop, participants will learn from practitioners in two Illinois communities the challenges of implementing community systems to enroll more children in high-quality early learning programs. Hear from the Innovation Zone that did not “go as planned” to build your understanding of key elements that help make this work succeed. The experience will be contrasted with a community in which Illinois’ Innovation Zones found some of their greatest success. Apply leading-edge science to address familiar challenges in this fun and interactive session. Our motto is “no failure, only learning.” Come and see what Illinois has learned!
