Fact Sheets for Families

Because families have concerns about health and safety too, CCHP developed Fact Sheets for Families. These Fact Sheets cover a wide range of health and safety issues written in easy-to-understand language with families in mind. They are designed to be shared with families directly by child care providers. 

Topics cover a wide range of health and safety issues pertaining to young children and their families in the areas of allergies, brain and behavior health, healthy environment, illnesses and conditions, injury prevention, nutrition and medications, parents' health, poisoning and special needs.

Use the  menu at the top of the table to select Fact Sheets for Families in a particular topic area.
