Training

Training, or 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 meetings, site visits, workshops, and conferences. We also provide virtual support to all ECE programs through online training modules, phone calls and email exchange.

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.
