STARNET supports family-centered, researched, and effective practices in early childhood education and care.
Illinois STARNET is a support and technical assistance regional network that provides training, consultation and resources to the early childhood community, with an emphasis on special needs.
The STARNET system assists the Illinois State Board of Education in meeting local needs by providing services to parents of young children with special needs throughout the state. The Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) funds the STARNET Project in six regions through administrative entities responsible for the implementation of the project. The City of Chicago is in Region V.
Our region provides services to families and providers working or living in the City of Chicago. STARNET supports family-centered, researched, and effective practices in early childhood education and care.
STARNET states: “Each child in Illinois will receive the support services necessary to enter the public school system ready to learn and progress successfully through school. The public school system will serve as a leader in collaborative effort among private and public agencies so that comprehensive and coordinated health, human and social services reach children and their families.
