ECLW’s Infant-Toddler Program is funded by the New York State Office of Children and Family Services. We work with our Consortium partner agencies, the Day Care Council of New York, Child Development Support Corporation, and Committee for Hispanic Children and Families Inc.
The NYC Consortium Infant-Toddler Resource Center is one of seven regional centers in New York State, its goal is to enhance the quality of infant-toddler care by:
- Providing a coordinated approach to training & professional development in all early care and education settings, in multiple languages for potential & existing childcare professionals.
- Providing center and home-based infant toddler programs, on-site, intensive technical assistance as a quality improvement strategy using standardized tools such as the Infant Toddler Environmental Rating Scale (ITERS -R) and Family Child Care Environmental Rating Scale (FCCERS-R) to assess needs, and measure quality improvement.
- Expanding coordination & partnerships with the public and private groups/agencies with a goal of improving the care of infants, toddlers, and their families.
The Center is a nexus for the provision of technical assistance and professional development opportunities on best practices that meet the developmental needs of children from birth to three. It seeks to increase the capacity of childcare center administrators, staff, family, group family and informal childcare providers to provide high quality early learning and care for New York City’s babies and toddlers.
