Our Services

The Georgia Program for Infant/Toddler Care (GA PITC), formerly the Infant Toddler Network, offers training and technical assistance to directors and teachers who serve children birth to 3 years old in centers or family child care homes. Infant/Toddler Specialists provide on-site services that include:

  • State approved trainings on a variety of topics that focus on infant/toddler care and development
  • Director Support
  • In-Classroom Coaching

Desired Results

Quality infant care is centered on relationships. Young children learn and grow in the context of secure, trusting relationships with caring adults. All supports and recommendations offered by our Infant/Toddler Specialists help providers understand and practice a model of relationship-based care that is respectful and responsive to each child’s individual needs. The following practices are important aspects of relationship-based care that the GA Infant/Toddler Specialists can help you achieve:

  • Implementation of the Six Essential Policies
  • Consistent planning and reflection to provide responsive care
  • Intentional decision making and teaching practices
