The Center on the Social and Emotional Foundations for Early Learning (CSEFEL) recently released a new infant-toddler parent training module, designed to enhance the social emotional development of infants and toddlers through parent-child interactions and relationships. The materials were created for facilitators to provide a one-day training to parent-child groups and home visitors.

One of the OCC’s priority goals is assisting States, Tribes, and Territories to design child care subsidy programs that are child focused, family friendly, and fair to providers. These child care subsidy programs reach all sectors of the early childhood and school age field, thus serving children birth through age twelve. The aim is to integrate child development goals and family self-sufficiency goals in order to promote increased stability and higher quality services that lead to improved child and family outcomes.
Efficient, well run programs enhance access to services for eligible families and children and create a key link in the education of young children and the self sufficiency of families. The National Center on Tribal Child Care Implementation and Innovation will support the work of Tribal grantees related to CCDF administration by: helping Tribes create continuous quality improvement efforts as they set quality goals; developing and coordinating peer-learning opportunities and leadership development; and supporting a biennial National Conference and other trainings for Tribal grantees.
