History of the Infancy Institute

Thirty years ago, the Bank Street Infant & Family Development and Early Intervention Program recognized the lack of professional development designed specifically to improve the practice of those working with infants and toddlers. The Infancy Institute was the answer to that interdisciplinary need in the many settings where infants, toddlers, and families interact with professionals. Highlighting cutting-edge research, development, relationship-based practice, and family-centered care, the institute has educated thousands of infant/toddler specialists from around the world.
