Child Care Support Network: Infant-Toddler Project (ARRA)
The purpose of this project is to a) adapt Zero to Three's National Infant and Toddler Child Care Initiative (NITCCI) Infant & Toddler Consultant Modules into online courses for child care providers and other front line staff to enhance foundation knowledge of early childhood development and mental health; and b) develop an early childhood mental health website designed to promote the dissemination of best practice information for front-line, cross-disciplinary providers working with infants, toddlers, and their families.
