Quality Improvement resource information on state policies and initiatives that impact infants, toddlers and their families

Infant/toddler child care providers who have completed or are currently enrolled in the West Virginia Infant/Toddler Professional Development Program may participate in the Infant/Toddler Quality Improvement Project to obtain technical assistance from an Infant/Toddler Specialist. This is a year-long commitment involving the caregiver, director and Infant/Toddler Specialist, beginning with an observation using the Infant/Toddler Environment Rating Scale (ITERS-R) to determine the classrooms strengths and areas for improvement. The caregiver, director and specialist then create a plan of action to address any health and safety issues brought to light during the ITERS-R observation. The plan of action allows for monthly technical assistance visits by the specialist to assist with areas of improvement through coaching, other trainings, referrals and resources.
