The Infant/Toddler Academy is a two and one-half day event designed exclusively for infant/toddler professionals in Minnesota and Wisconsin. Join your colleagues in to deepen your knowledge of relationship- based care and education that supports infants, toddlers, and their families. The event will include two separate tracks to meet the professional development needs of management and direct service staff working in center-based, family child care and/or home-based programs.

For staff who work in center-based or family child care settings, topics will include supporting infant and toddler social and emotional development, embedded learning opportunities for infants and toddlers, building emotionally supportive environments for children and staff, and practice-based coaching.

For staff who work in home-based programs, topics will include the unique role of the home visitor, engaging and effective socializations, working with families with challenging situations, and professional development and coaching for the home visitor.

Join us at the Infant/Toddler Academy to:

  • Deepen your knowledge of effective practices that support infant and toddler development
  • Learn how to ensure group socializations are effective for children and families
  • Learn strategies for embedding learning opportunities into infant and toddler daily routines, planned learning experiences, and adult-child interactions
  • Gain competency in working with families with challenging situations
  • Understand how professional development, including coaching, can strengthen educational practices and improve retention of infant and toddler staff
