What is the Infant Toddler Specialist Network (ITSN)?
The KCCTO-KITS ITSN Project is a collaboration of Kansas Child Care Training Opportunities, Inc. and the Kansas Inservice Training System. Our team consists of professionals from a variety of educational and experiential backgrounds. We are early childhood educators who have been family child care providers, center providers, and classroom teachers. We are early interventionists and speech-language pathologists. We come from military child care and inclusive centers. As coaches and mentors, we strive to support you in your task of providing quality child care to infants and toddlers and their families.
