Statewide Initiatives

Infant/Toddler Specialist Network

Each early learning coalition has a designated representative assigned to the Infant/Toddler Specialist Network. Network representatives get training, technical assistance and resources that they pass on to local providers to help improve overall quality for birth to 3 programs. The network holds monthly meetings to discuss training opportunities and needs, research, resources and best practices in caring for children birth to age 3. There are also webinars and on-site training. Infant/toddler care providers should be familiar with the Florida Early Learning and Developmental Standards. Enrolling in the corresponding courses helps them get that training.
