A new, interactive website for Hoosier parents provides resources and tools to help give children the best learning experience, both at home and at daycare.

BrighterFuturesIndiana.org offers activities and other daily exercises crafted for specific ages. These lessons, covering a range of subjects, help parents encourage their little ones to reach important developmental milestones.

Parents can gauge their child’s progress using the developmental milestone lists. Whether it’s a child’s first laugh at four months or starting kindergarten at five, Brighter Futures Indiana offers helpful materials and tips on creating a positive and beneficial learning environment.

Brighter Futures Indiana lists local childcare options, both after-school programs and in-home care for Indiana families to consider. Its detailed descriptions and tools, like the Child Care Finder, help parents locate a childcare facility that best fits their family’s personal needs. The website also shares information on how to apply for financial assistance programs like the Child Care Development Fund  voucher program, On My Way Pre-K and other statewide programs.

In addition to the online resources, Hoosiers can receive education ideas on their phone through Bloom Bright texts and on the Brighter Futures Indiana weekly blog.
