Comprised of 4 Modules, the Program for Infant Toddler Care (PITC) is designed to help child care directors and infant/toddler care teachers become sensitive to infants’ cues, connect with their family and culture, and develop responsive, relationship-based care. This training takes an in-depth look at cognitive and social-emotional development, encouraging growth within daily routines and tips on setting up appropriate environments for experienced infant and toddler professionals.
This module explores the positive impact of responsive caregiving routines, well-designed learning environments, and individualized care on the well-being and development of children from birth to three. Attention is also given to how the policies of primary care, small groups, continuity of care, individualization of care, culturally responsive care, and inclusive care of children with special needs provide the foundation for high-quality infant/toddler care.
Those completing all 4 modules can apply to receive the Program Infant Toddler Caregiver Certification.
