Download Plug-Ins and System Requirements

Some of the files on the Early Childhood Learning and Knowledge Center (ECLKC) (e.g. PDFs or Microsoft Word documents) require a viewer or "plug-in" to open or view. These plug-ins are very common, so you likely already have them on your computer, but if not, you may need to install a particular one to view some of the files on this site.

Please use the links below to download any software plug-ins you may need.

If you need a plug-in not listed, please contact us.
