This recorded session from ACF’s National Research Conference on Early Childhood 2020 (NRCEC 2020) featured a presentation on the We Grow Together Professional Development System (WGT) field test (beginning at time marker 22:45) alongside presentations from two other projects.

We Grow Together (WGT) is a professional development (PD) system for caregivers working with infants and toddlers in center-based care and family child care homes. Caregivers are supported in planning and using the WGT practices through relationship- and practice-based coaching from a trained local PD provider who can be a coach, supervisor, mentor, or anyone else who provides ongoing PD. WGT is based on nationally recommended best practices for interacting with infants and toddlers that are measured with the Q-CCIIT observational tool.
