Get Involved

We are here to help all Hoosiers advance early learning across the state – including you.

Ensuring great early learning opportunities for Indiana’s youngest citizens is no small task. Children need partners from sectors – families, early childhood educators, child care resource and referral agencies, and community members representing business, education, neighborhoods and more – to guarantee them a great start at life.

Partnerships for Early Learners exists to provide each of those partners with powerful pathways for activating their ideas, skills and connections to build a strong early learning system.

Stay connected to early childhood projects, research, and opportunities throughout the state with our e-newsletter.
