About VA ITSN

The Virginia Infant & Toddler Specialist Network (VA ITSN) strives to achieve excellence in early care by increasing the knowledge level and skills of those who care for infants and toddlers, whether in family day homes or in center-based programs. It also serves to link existing community resources that support healthy, safe and nurturing care for children, birth-36 months. Twenty highly qualified infant and toddler specialists work in nine regional offices across the state, that subcontract with Child Development Resources. Ten highly qualified infant and toddler behavior consultants work across our nine-state regions. The specialists and consultants provide professional development opportunities designed to strengthen the capacity of early care and education programs to deliver high-quality services.
