The Child Care Health Program (CCHP) supports child care and early learning programs by promoting health and safety practices with its team of nurse, mental health, nutrition, and education consultants. The CCHP offers providers tools and resources including model health policy templates, communicable disease prevention information, nutrition and healthy eating guidelines, WAC-compliant health forms and care plans, and other materials to promote healthy child development and behaviors.
