DPI Goal: A Strong Early Childhood Community in Wisconsin

All children deserve a quality childhood so they become joyful, lifelong learners, active contributors to healthy communities, and productive members of society. The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) works in partnership with the early childhood community -- including parents and professionals in the public and private sector -- to create strong communities in which all families are supported in their roles and responsibilities.

Save the dates for the 2017-2018 School Year:

  • Collaborative Leadership Forum--Preserving Early Childhood (PEC). February 27-March 1, 2018. Watch for more details.
  • You can find the handouts from the 2017 and earlier PEC Conferences at: PEC Handouts
