                                       Dear Colleagues,

                                       As we move into our 50th year, Illinois Action for Children and our Community partners
                         Let’s Go!     believe that providing quality care for all children is our most important task as child care
                                       professionals.

                                       We strive to offer opportunities that enhance your child care setting and your professional
                                       development. I encourage you to find a training workshop that is the best fit for you and
                                       your child care program.

    most important task as             During this Golden Anniversary, Illinois Action for Children humbly recognizes all that has
    child care professionals.          led us to the organization we are today. This will carry us into the next half of a century
                                       with even greater strength and resolve to create a better Illinois, where every child and
