The Program for Infant/Toddler Care PITC – Philosophy & Approach

Every infant comes into the world eager to learn. PITC emphasizes infant/toddler care that is based on relationship planning, not lesson planning, and on the most current early development and care research. Caregivers and teachers learn to get "in tune" with each infant they serve and learn from the individual what he or she needs, thinks, and feels. PITC is recognized worldwide as the source for high quality infant/toddler care training and materials.  (With permission from The Program for Infant/Toddler Care)
