Indiana’s Early Childhood

Roadmap to Recovery

Triangle 3

Early childhood education plays a critical role in Indiana’s road to recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. It is essential to children, families and communities, helping children recover from learning loss and prepare for educational journeys ahead while allowing their parents and caregivers to work.

With the input of programs, partners and community stakeholders across the state, Indiana has created an intentional plan for the use of its federal coronavirus relief funding to enable programs to regain sustainability, deliver two-generational supports to families, and introduce new system supports that build industry strength for the future.
