"Study after study proves that those who receive high-quality child care are more likely to succeed, starting in kindergarten and continuing through adulthood. The foundation for this success must be laid early on, when children are infants and toddlers."
NYS Infant & Toddler Resource Network
Most of New York’s children will spend some of their formative years in child care outside the home.
The quality of that care will help shape the rest of their lives.
ECLC works with a network of seven Regional Infant Toddler Technical Assistance Centers across New York State. Established in 2002 with funding from the New York State Office of Children and Families Services, the Infant Toddler Technical Assistance Centers are located within host CCR&Rs. A staff of highly trained Infant Toddler Specialists comprise this statewide network, and offer a plethora of valuable resources for parents and child care providers. Included among the services that Centers provide are the following:
- training and technical assistance to the child care provider community;
- information on best practices for families and providers;
- support to the CCR&Rs within the region;
- support to the NYSOCFS regional office staff;
- assistance to the community in expanding comprehensive service delivery for infants, toddlers and their families.
Our Infant Toddler Project reaches out to communities, child care providers, and families to promote safe, nurturing environments for the youngest New Yorkers. It emphasizes the high-quality early care that’s essential to a child's long-term social, emotional, and intellectual development. That, in turn, has a positive ripple effect on schools, businesses, and communities across New York State.
