Welcome to the more than 500 resources that were collected and have been saved for use by all early childhood educators.
Resources are organized by content areas:

  • Curriculum & Program Design
  • Family & Community Relationships
  • Health Safety & Well-Being
  • Human Growth & Development
  • Interactions
  • Relationships & Environments
  • Observation & Assessment
  • Professionalism

Resources can be searched by selecting keyword, content area, or by type using the search function.


In addition to the Resources found on the HERO site, we wanted to highlight two other resources.

1. Cultural and Linguistic Resources for Illinois Higher Education (now on the HERO site)

2. Heartland Equity and Inclusion Project (HEIP)
