Bright & Early DuPage

Bright & Early DuPage, an initiative of the DuPage Foundation, is a unique program designed to leverage area resources to ensure that all DuPage youngsters from birth to age 5 receive the comprehensive support critical in preparing them for success in kindergarten and beyond.

Community by community, Bright & Early DuPage is engaging and uniting local organizations and individuals in collaboration to build awareness for and facilitate access to early childhood education and support services for DuPage children and their families. Bright & Early DuPage also serves as a voice for early learning and child-friendly policies at all levels of government.

Every DuPage child will be ready to succeed in kindergarten.
