State/territory infant/toddler credential overview

The purpose of this document is to inform the development or enhancement of State/Territory Professional Development (PD) systems. This document was prepared by the National Center on Child Care Professional Development Systems and Workforce Initiatives (PDW Center) and is intended for guidance only. The document provides a snapshot of credentialing and PD efforts across the nation by capturing the information available online about the various approaches used by States/Territories. This document does not include the complete or exact text of State/Territory approaches; nor does it capture articulation efforts. The information in this document has not been fully vetted by States or Territories and does not include State/Territory updates or revisions made after April 2014. The document does not yet reflect Tribes. States/Territories could use this document to assess the accuracy of their website information, identify strengths and gaps, get a glimpse of other State/Territory efforts, and consider articulation or portability beyond one's State/Territory. State/Territory links to the online pages are posted at the top of each table. Users are encouraged to refer back to online pages for a more complete understanding of the State/Territory approach.
