Learning Starts at Birth and meeting families where they are in their neighborhood is a top priority. EPEL and partners focus on removing barriers for children to access early learning opportunities and families receiving needed resources to prepare their children for school and life.

EPEL and community partners meet in the neighborhoods to offer learning through play, books, storytime, crafts, food, and materials to extend learning at home for children ages birth to five. Learning on the Go started in 2018 with neighborhood pop-ups and has developed into weekly visits with bilingual teachers in seven (five in Elgin and two in Hanover Park) outdoor play areas nested in neighborhoods. Community partners collaborate to support children and families by attending each week to offer services from the health, education, and social service systems. Children receive lunch, new books, early learning materials and can check out library books from the daily stop of the bookmobile.
