Professional Development Trainings
Illinois Action for Children, in collaboration with its network of Community Partners, offers comprehensive professional development opportunities, resources, and technical assistance to early care and school-age professionals throughout Cook County.
Early Care and Education Resource Guide
Published four times each year, the Early Care and Education Resource Guide (Course Catalog) is a listing of professional development training opportunities offered by Illinois Action for Children and its network of Community Partners.
Most of the professional development training offered in this guide will meet both in-service hours required by the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) as well as the CDA/CCP credentialing requirements. Programs and providers who are listed in the Illinois Action for Children Referral Database will automatically receive this resource guide in the mail.
