CCHCs are healthcare professionals with specialized training and experience in child health issues. They provide expert guidance, health education and technical assistance through onsite consultations and trainings to child care providers on a wide range of health and safety topics. They assist child care programs to include children with special needs and chronic health conditions by offering technical assistance and by linking programs with local and state resources.

CCHCs work with individual child care facilities to help create environments that best support the healthy growth and development of young children by:

  • Assessing the health and safety needs and practices in the child care facility
  • Developing strategies for inclusion of children with special care needs
  • Establishing and reviewing health policies and procedures
  • Educating to prevent injuries and infectious diseases
  • Connecting families with community health resources and referrals
  • Providing health education for staff members, families and children
  • Advocating for children and parents

We appreciate making positive changes together!
