IIFP provides high-quality trainings for early childhood organizations and that are practical, implementable, and culturally sensitive.
Having a well-trained early childhood workforce (home visitors, early childhood educators, early interventionists) is essential for improving outcomes for children and families and uplifting communities.

Circle of Security for Parents: The Circle of Security program is an early intervention program for parents and caregivers that focuses on building strong relationships between parents and children. It helps parents better understand their child’s emotional needs and develop secure attachments. The program is based on attachment theory and is effective in promoting secure attachment relationships and improving child outcomes.
Circle of Security for Classroom Teachers: COSC equips early care professionals by providing a clear model of children’s attachment needs, and highlights the importance of the teacher in responding to these needs. The learning series also supports educators to look beyond behavioral approaches to seeing the ways attachment needs are communicated by behavior (and often misbehavior).
Abriendo Puertas/Opening Doors is a program designed to support and empower parents and caregivers of young children from low-income, immigrant, and/or Spanish-speaking communities. The program provides parents with the knowledge and skills they need to be their child’s first and most important teacher, and to support their child’s development and success.
Positive Discipline is a program developed to provide teachers with the tool to teach young people to become responsible, respectful, and resourceful members of their communities. Positive Discipline teaches important social and life skills in a manner that is empowering and encouraging for both children and adults (including parents, teachers, childcare providers, youth workers, and others.)
