Have an impact
"Early care educators have the opportunity to influence the architecture of developing brains, the potential to promote healthy development, and to protect very young children against stress. Our Infant Toddler Development program is designed to help these teachers achieve optimal impact in their crucial professional roles in building young, healthy brains."
