The PITC Curriculum
Enhancing the relationship-based, responsive approach to early care promoted by the PITC, new PITC Curriculum planning tools and strategies support the efforts of family care providers and center-based teachers to facilitate high-quality, individualized learning and healthy development for children from 0-3. Unique to the PITC Curriculum is a planning process based on reflection, observation, and documentation of play and learning that respects each child’s developing abilities, individual strengths and needs, family culture(s), and language(s).

The Program for Infant/Toddler Care (PITC), developed collaboratively by WestEd and the California Department of Education, is a comprehensive training system that promotes responsive, caring relationships for infants and toddlers and employs research-based training materials and strategies for the early education field. PITC is an integral part of the California Infant/Toddler Learning and Development System. It has helped establish California as a national leader to improve young children’s quality of care and education. Visit PITC.org to learn more.
