Child care health consultants (CCHCs) support the health, safety, and wellness of young children, families, and staff in early care and education (ECE) settings. They foster quality care by observing for recommended practices and identifying hazards in the facility or family child care home. CCHCs collaborate with directors, teachers, and family child care providers to help them comply with regulations, standards, and promote best practices to ensure children’s safe and healthy development.
The resources in this section help CCHCs as they work with ECE programs to plan, implement, improve, and evaluate health and safety practices.
