Child Care Provider Toolkit

The goal of this toolkit is to provide best practices for child care environments that instill healthy and safe behavior for children beginning at birth to five years old. 

Topics are guided by current national, state, and local standards that can also be used by Family Child Care Home providers. (These are best practice standards only, thus state licensing regulations should be observed.)
