DuPage Early Childhood Community Profile

DuPage Federation is pleased to publish DuPage Early Childhood Community Profile, a report commissioned by DuPage Foundation through its Bright & Early DuPage (B&ED) initiative.  B&ED is a unique program designed to leverage area resources to ensure that all DuPage children from birth to age five receive the comprehensive support critical in preparing them for success in kindergarten and beyond.  For more information about DuPage Foundation and the Bright & Early DuPage initiative, please visit


The report sought to improve our understanding of what is currently needed to improve the early childhood system – specifically, 1) what has changed in the early childhood system since 2016, 2) do early childhood collaboratives help early childhood systems succeed, and 3) are there ways early childhood systems can be improved.


A copy of DuPage Early Childhood Community Profile can be downloaded from the Community Profiles section of our website or from the button below.

We are grateful to DuPage Foundation for its continued support of our mission and to the Bright & Early DuPage initiative for allowing us the opportunity to develop and share this profile with our community.
