Elgin Partnership for Early Learning works to intensify the impact of local efforts that prepare children for Kindergarten by integrating community partners. Thanks to Fit For Kids funding EPEL, Alignment Collaborative for Education, and the City of Elgin combined efforts to design and install "Move, Play, and Talk" signs at Festival Park at the center of Elgin. Signs throughout the play area offer early learning opportunities that complement the readiness skills needs for Kindergarten.
Come visit the park to Learn through PLAY!
