Illinois Projects in Practice (PIP) provides support, resources, and information for teachers, specialists, administrators, and trainers interested in the implementation of the Project Approach in Illinois classrooms for preschool children.

A project is an in-depth investigation of a topic undertaken by a class, a group of children, or an individual child in an early childhood classroom or at home.

The Project Approach helps young children meet the Illinois Early Learning and Development Standards!

What is the Project Approach?

A method of teaching in which an in-depth study of a particular topic is conducted by a child or a group of children. The Project Approach is incorporated into the curriculum but does not always constitute the entire curriculum.
