EEC and its partners from Department of Public Health, Head Start, Higher Education and the EEC Educator Provider Support (EPS) Grantees have just completed a four day statewide leadership training initiative for infant and toddler settings. The purpose of this training initiative is to build a solid foundation for early learning in infant and toddler settings and to create a statewide infant and toddler leadership network through regional collaborations. Regional networks are being formed through the EPS Grantees in the Fall of 2011.

Three training modules created by the National Infant and Toddler Child Care Initiative @Zero to Three, a project of the Federal Child Care Bureau were used as the framework for this initiative.
