The Plan

The Plan

Bright & Early DuPage provides opportunities for community collaborations to ensure high-quality preschool learning standards, early screenings for at-risk children, professional development for educators, community outreach and parent support to help improve children’s kindergarten readiness.

Through Bright & Early DuPage, the DuPage Foundation is providing grant funding to support community collaboratives dedicated to increasing the number of DuPage children who are prepared to succeed from the time they enter kindergarten. Through this Initiative, the collaboratives are challenged to reach out to parents, caregivers and community members to build awareness of the importance of early learning, and to address cultural and language barriers that may hinder parental involvement in children’s early learning experiences.

Funding will be awarded to collaboratives that demonstrate a proven ability to harness community resources to deliver measureable impact for children and families.
