States across the country are introducing policies that are designed to improve the quality of early education for infants and toddlers. These policies were created to achieve a variety of goals including: improving infant/toddler trainings for providers, increasing access to comprehensive services for infants/toddlers, and establishing core competencies that providers should know before working with infants/toddlers. In Wisconsin, the introduction of the Infant Toddler Professional Credential is highlighted as an example of a policy change that promotes a strong, knowledgeable workforce. With specialized training in infant and toddler development, providers are able to provide higher quality care for the youngest Wisconsin residents. Other state examples of infant/toddler policy progress are included in a recent report by the Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP). You can view the full report here.
