Connect4Tots Program Launches Across Chicago

Connect4Tots is a text-message service for parents and guardians of toddlers ages 1 to 3. By enrolling, parents and guardians will receive 2-3 free text messages per week with information on their child’s growth and development as well as connections to health, education, public service and event resources in the City of Chicago. To enroll, parents and guardians should text TOTOPT7 to 311311.

Connect4Tots is sponsored by the City of Chicago and University of Chicago Urban Labs. Its purpose is to connect Chicago-area parents and guardians of children ages 1 to 3 with evidenced-based information on their child’s developmental milestones and connect them to Chicago-area resources, such as vaccinations and free clinics, public assistance enrollment services, age-appropriate events and early learning resources.
