Evidence Based Parent Resources

We aim to turn our research into real world results. Our resources for preschool parents are drawn from our evidence base. We bring you a text-based program for guided parent-child conversations, early math tip sheets, and early math videos – all intended to increase and improve your engagement in your child’s learning.


Spark a love of learning and curiosity that will prepare your child for kindergarten and beyond. Join our text message program for families in IIlinois Preschool For All and Preschool For All Expansion programs to support children’s school readiness.

Taking time to Chat2Learn everyday with your child will build your preschooler’s literacy, math, and social skills.
