The Wisconsin Infant Toddler Policy Project (WITPP)

Advancing a robust policy agenda to expand high quality, affordable child care and promote optimal child development and wellbeing for low-income Wisconsin families with infants and toddlers.


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.
