The Program for Infant/Toddler Care (PITC) at WestEd seeks to ensure that America’s infants get a safe, healthy, emotionally secure and intellectually rich start in life. Grounded in sound child-development and family research, PITC’s approach emphasizes relationship-based strategies that are responsive to the needs of infants and toddlers and their families.

PITC offers week-long Trainer Institutes for educators, program managers, and other professionals responsible for training infant/toddler care teachers.

Registration is currently open for the Trainer Institute taking place June 24–30, 2018 in Berkeley, California.

What You Will Learn

The Trainer Institute provides participants with a comprehensive study of the PITC philosophy and recommended practices. Each session focuses on how to improve the quality of care in your programs, communities, and state as well as adult learning and teaching strategies.

The June 24–30, 2018, training covers PITC Module I: Social-Emotional Growth and Socialization, and Module II: Group Care.

After completing the certification requirements, participants receive a certificate of completion from WestEd and the California Department of Education that recognizes them as trainers for the specific modules in which they received training.

Who Leads the Training

Leading experts in infant development and care and faculty from WestEd’s Center for Child and Family Studies (CCFS) lead the trainings. CCFS Co-Directors Ronald Lally and Peter L. Mangione are among the experts.
