Child care health consultants, Head Start health staff, nurses, and other child care resource and referral agencies are invited to participate in a health and safety webinar on Thursday, September 12.
There is a great deal of health information available, but not all of it is correct or appropriate. Due to the sharing of misinformation, it can be a challenge for families to know the best things to do to keep their child healthy and safe. Child care health consultants (CCHCs) play a key role in sharing relevant and accurate health education materials with program staff, children, and families.
Join the National Center on Early Childhood Health and Wellness (NCECHW) for a webinar to explore health and safety tips staff and families can use to promote children’s healthy development and prevent injuries at home.
