Next week, watch for some familiar faces at Illinois Action for Children’s conference, Equity From the Start: Reimagining the Early Childhood System. Our Parent Leadership Training Co-Facilitator, Sylvia Swirsky, will participate in the panel “Parents as Partners: Intentional Parent Engagement in Early Childhood Collaborations.” Scroll down to the Early Learning section of this newsletter for more Collaboration-related programming at the conference.
In other news, our Executive Director, John Borrero, has recently been re-appointed by Governor JB Pritzker to serve as a member of the Illinois Early Learning Council (ELC) for another term. Early Learning Council members serve on a voluntary, unpaid basis and reflect the regional, cultural, and racial diversity of Illinois. We are glad to have his voice at the table to speak on behalf of the children of Oak Park and River Forest.
