Training, which we often refer to as professional development, is best defined as tailored guidance to help you meet your goals. Let’s Go! is committed to supporting our sites through small, in-person meetings, group sector meetings, site visits, workshops and conferences. We also provide virtual support to all child care programs through our interactive webinars.
We’ll teach you new skills, provide expert advice, coach you through challenges and offer encouragement as you work to increase opportunities for healthy eating and active living in the places kids live, learn, work and play.
