    Did you know that you can visit the following sites and sign up to receive advocacy information?

    Ounce of Prevention IL – go to http://www.theounce.org, click on Advocate for Early Childhood, then click on sign up for action alerts

    IL Action for Children – go to http://www.actforchildren.org, click on Take Action on behalf of children and families, then click on get involved

    Following these steps can help keep you up to date on ways to get involved and be an advocate for yourself and the children and families you serve.  We need to be advocates to run a better business.


    Webster dictionary defines, advocate “as one who pleads on behalf of another”.  As early childhood practitioners this is what we do. We work diligently to support children, families, and our community. Here are some additional resources to help us learn more about the systems that has an impact on the work we do. I urge others to share as well. Also, you can sign up for their newsletter.
