River Valley’s Infant and Toddler Certificate is designed to provide students with knowledge and skills in this specialized area of early childhood education. Key topics of study will include: relationships with families, safe and developmentally appropriate environments, promotion of optimal child outcomes, observation & documentation, inclusion, and diversity.
Building and expanding a strong infant and toddler workforce is a priority for New Hampshire, and across the nation. The Infant and Toddler Certificate qualifies a student to apply for an infant and toddler endorsement on an early childhood
credential certificate awarded by the New Hampshire Bureau of Child Development
and Head Start Collaboration.
Students already employed in the field at an early care & education center licensed by the NH Child Care Licensing Unit may be eligible for scholarships through the Early Childhood Tuition Assistance (ECTA) Program. For more information, please go to: www.ccsnh.edu/ece.
