This resource communicates the importance of primary caregiving for infants and toddlers. It provides rationale for designating a primary caregiver, and looks at positive outcomes for young children with a primary caregiver.

The guide was created by the Infant/Toddler Specialist Network of the Child Care State Capacity Building Center and contains numerous resources to support policymakers; technical assistance professionals; and infant and toddler teachers, center directors, and family child care providers.
