History

The Illinois School-Age Child Care Network (ISACCN) began with a retreat for school-age providers in Illinois in the late 80’s. The participating organizations discussed forming a “School-Age Network” that would connect providers throughout the state and provide activities in the areas of training, advocacy, program standards and worthy wages.  In the summer of 2004, the Board of Directors voted to change the name to the Illinois AfterSchool Network (IAN).
