Using Consultants to Support Best Practices in Infant-Toddler Child Care

The BUILD InitiativeCenter for Law and Social Policy, and ZERO TO THREE have come together to sponsor a webinar and blog series for those engaged in the state policy process as leaders, decision makers, and advocates. The series, Child Care and Development Block Grant and the First 1,000 Days: Great Beginnings for Infants and Toddlers, addresses the following: successful implementation of the new funding in the states; building the supply of quality infant-toddler child care; and community engagement, documentation, data gathering, and information and strategy sharing.

On August 6, 2018, Dr. Myra Jones-Taylor, Deb Adams, Jill Downs and Linda Labas collaborated on a webinar in the series, Reaching Out: Using Consultants to Support Best Practices in Infant-Toddler Child Care, which is now archived for on-demand viewing. A link to the recording is available (must complete a simple short registration) and free access to the webinar PowerPoint™ presentation is also provided. Here is an overview of the webinar:

  1. Explore the role of consultants in increasing the quality of infant-toddler care;
  2. Develop an understanding of strategies to coordinate across consultant types; and
  3. Explore the implementation of consultant pools with two state examples: Connecticut and Maine.

This webinar and blog series is supported with funding from the Pritzker Children’s Initiative, a project of the JB and MK Pritzker Family Foundation.
