ITSN members will have opportunities to dive deep into the state resources that drive many of the infant-toddler professional development initiatives in Texas.
Understanding state-level resources of the early childhood system allows specialists to stay “plugged in” to what’s happening in Texas for infant-toddler programs. The Texas state resources that infant-toddler specialists will learn about fall in three general categories:
- Quality Rating and Improvement System for Child Care (Texas Rising Star)
- Data Systems and Professional Development Resources (CLI Engage and the Texas Early Childhood Professional Development System)
- State Guidelines (Infant, Toddler, and Three-Year-Old Early Learning Guidelines and the Texas Core Competencies for Early Childhood Practitioners and Administrators)
