The Collaboration for Early Childhood is a nonprofit organization located in Oak Park, Illinois. As a collective impact model agency, the Collaboration seeks to examine local systems, and create ways to impact local capacity to provide resources, information and support for families and providers of children under five years of age.
Since our inception in 2002, we have embraced the vision that all Oak Park and River Forest children should arrive at kindergarten safe, healthy, ready to succeed, and eager to learn. It is a large and ambitious vision. It truly takes a village to support our children. That’s why we work with families and caregivers, educators and staff, health professionals and systems leaders.
With these partnerships in mind, our work in the community falls into four service areas: Early Learning, Health & Development, Family Engagement, and Community Partnerships.
