Expanding Quality in Infant Toddler Care Initiative

Welcome!

The Expanding Quality in Infant Toddler Care (EQ) Initiative is a collaboration between the Colorado Department of Education and the Colorado Department of Human Services, Division of Child Care. Our primary goal is to increase the quality and availability of responsive care for infants and toddlers throughout Colorado by:

            • Strengthening the skills and knowledge base of Early Childhood professionals working with infants and toddlers

            • Building capacity and promoting systemic change to foster increased quality and availability of care and services

            • Supporting leadership and collaboration at the community level

            • Facilitating professional development for infant toddler professionals, particularly those who are teaching or coaching infant toddler teachers
