Promoting Excellence in Care

Our Mission

The Infant Toddler Specialist Network will provide technical assistance and  professional development opportunities that assist infant and toddler caregivers in providing West Virginia’s youngest children with supportive, nurturing environments. We will help these caregivers foster responsive relationships with both children and their families, which will support our children in achieving optimal developmental outcomes.

Our Vision

Caregivers of infants and toddlers will understand the importance of lifelong learning and professional development and understand that their own professional goals are the key to providing high quality care to West Virginia’s infants and toddlers.

What’s New?

Great Beginnings 2020 Information


Over the past few months the West Virginia Infant Toddler Specialist Network and the Division of Early Care and Education have been closely monitoring the coronavirus conditions across the U.S. and West Virginia. Our first and foremost concern is for the health, safety, and well-being of our attendees, trainers, and colleagues. We are therefore cancelling Great Beginnings 2020 due to the uncertainty of the situation. We look forward to seeing you in the fall of 2021 for a bigger and better Great Beginnings.
