Health and safety in the early care and education field is a huge subject, and practices change regularly in response to new standards, regulations and research results.

In recognition of this, CCHP has developed hundreds of user-friendly educational resources to help early care and education programs, trainers, Child Care Health Consultants, Child Care Health Advocates and the families they serve stay abreast of best practices. Our publications provide clear guidelines and educational information on the issues that arise most frequently in the field of early care and education.
