A NEW STATE LAW SIGNED BY GOVERNOR BRUCE RAUNER MAKES SURE MORE MONEY GOES INTO EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION PROGRAMS.

 

CURRENTLY…14 PERCENT OF EARLY CHILDHOOD BLOCK GRANT MONEY GOES TO PROGRAMS FOR KIDS UP TO AGE THREE, WHICH FIRST LADY DIANA RAUNER SAYS IS VITAL TO THEIR DEVELOPMENT. THIS NEW LAW EVENTUALLY RAISES THAT AMOUNT TO 20 PERCENT.

 

 

RAUNER SAYS THIS WILL LET THE STATE EXPAND ACCESS TO EARLY LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES.

 

 

ILLINOIS WAS THE FIRST STATE IN THE COUNTRY TO ENSURE A PORTION OF THE EARLY CHILDHOOD BLOCK GRANT WENT TOWARDS PROGRAMS FOR INFANTS AND TODDLERS.
