June 28, 2023 2023 Infant/Toddler and School-Age Child Care Institute (ITSACCI) Child care leaders and their partners continue to work together to ensure that all children, families, and their caregivers have access to high-quality resources that equitably support their social-emotional development and mental health needs. Social-emotional and mental health supports are foundational to children’s healthy development and learning and are associated with positive long-term health, educational, and well-being outcomes. Children, families, and child care professionals all thrive when effective social-emotional and mental health supports are intentionally integrated and aligned. The Virtual 2023 Infant/Toddler and School-Age Child Care Institute (ITSACCI) will provide professional development opportunities on the topics of social-emotional development and mental health to child care leaders and their partners, whose work is focused on infant/toddler and school-age policies and practices carried out under the Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) program. Hosted by the Administration for Children & Families and its Office of Child Care, this interactive event will enable attendees to learn about promising practices from their peers and to collaboratively problem-solve to address challenges in supporting the social-emotional development and mental health of every child and caregiver.
