What Is the Maine Infant Toddler Credential?

Maine Roads to Quality Professional Development Network, in partnership with the Maine Department of Health and Human Services Office of Child and Family Services, has developed the Maine Infant Toddler Credential in response to the nationwide movement to recognize and support the professional development needs of infant and toddler caregivers.
