HEALTH, NUTRITION & SAFETY

xsmaller-ToddlerImmunizationShot

Health, Nutrition and Safety is about …

  • collaborating with parents and the local community to promote the health and well-being of each child
  • facilitating children and families' access to health, mental health, and dental services
  • reinforcing healthy eating patterns and food safety in routine food services, special programming and events for children and families
  • integrating health, safety and well-being into the program's ongoing activities, professional learning, curriculum, and assessment practices
Because learning is interrelated, a child's growth and development in one area influences and depends on development in another area. No one area of development and learning is more important than another. A child's physical and cognitive development reinforce each other.
