Partners for Quality
PITC Partners for Quality, a project of WestEd’s Center for Child and Family Studies, offers subsidized on-site training, mentoring and coaching in the PITC Philosophy to groups of infant/toddler care teachers, administrators and family child care providers throughout California.
The on-site training, conducted by experienced PITC certified infant/toddler specialists, is tailored to the individual needs of each participating program and includes a comprehensive series of videos and active adult learning strategies. Trainers mentor and coach program staff on implementing the PITC philosophy and essential policies to promote high quality responsive, relationship-based infant and toddler care.
The Program for Infant/Toddler Care is a collaboration between the California Department of Education Child Development Division and WestEd. PITC’s Partners for Quality project is part of an ongoing commitment to improve the care and support the learning of children birth to three.
"I am so impressed with the changes in [our] program and the enthusiasm and commitment of the staff since the trainings occurred."
Partners for Quality is now offering California's Infant/Toddler Learning & Development System Seminars. For more information, please view our Featured Items section.
