The Wisconsin Infant Toddler Policy Project (WITPP)

We’re excited to announce WITPP will soon fall under Raising Wisconsin, the WECA-led state advocacy coalition dedicated to improving the early care and education landscape in Wisconsin. Check this page and WECA’s social media channels for updates on this transition.

Every low-income family with an infant and/or toddler will have equitable access to affordable, high-quality, culturally and linguistically responsive early care and education that meets their family and employment needs and supports optimal child development and wellbeing. The early childhood education workforce will have the skills, training, and support to deliver high-quality care and education with
commensurate compensation.

Goal 1: All low-income families have equitable access to the information and supports they need to promote optimal early childhood development and well-being.

Goal 2: All low-income families will have equitable access to a range of affordable, high quality, culturally-and linguistically- responsive child care options that meet their employment and
family needs.

Goal 3: The early childhood workforce will have the skills, training, and support to deliver high quality
care with commensurate compensation.


The Plan

  • Work with early childhood educators and other multi-sector partners to form a united voice on the importance of infant and toddler care in Wisconsin.
  • Build a strong network of early childhood education champions comprised of business leaders, grassroots coalitions, K-12 leaders, philanthropic partners, early childhood educators, parents, chambers of commerce, and other community leaders.
  • Advance a robust policy and budget action plan to support the critical needs of Wisconsin’s low-income families with infants and toddlers.
