We know you’re doing your very best to create a safe, healthy, and engaging environment for the kids in your care. Even so, you may feel overwhelmed by the scale and significance of your work. You probably don’t have much time to research best practices in early care and education, much less put them into effect.
As a child care provider, you deserve support — someone to turn to in moments of confusion and difficulty, someone who can provide guidance and answer questions, someone who listens to you and responds to your needs. A Child Care Health Consultant can be your support system — a listening ear, an advisor, a coach, and a partner.
You’re in this work because you love kids. But you also need to earn a living and financially support your own family. The Child Care Health Consultant Network can advise you on effective business practices and offer referrals to useful community resources.
More importantly, we can equip you with the tools you need to make improvements — large or small — that support the health, safety, and well-being of the kids in your care. By stepping up the quality of your child care, more parents will send their kids your way — and recommend your business to their friends and family.
Your Child Care Health Consultant will help you improve your care in ways that best fit your individual needs, particular strengths, and unique child care environment.
Our highly trained and experienced Child Care Health Consultants have worked in the child care sector for decades and have even served as providers themselves. They are experts in the latest early care and education research and best practices, so you don’t have to be.
They can advise you on an endless list of topics related to health, safety, and wellness. Maybe you’ve always dreamed of putting a particular practice in place. Perhaps you want to create something completely unique for your child care environment. Or you may want to move beyond the basics and offer a higher quality of care.
Here are a few of the many topics the CCHC Network can offer guidance on:
You set your own goals and focus areas. You decide how often to meet and how much support you want. We’ll never force you to meet specific goals or make changes you don’t want to. Best of all, the service is always free, with no hidden fees or extra charges.
Your experience with the CCHC Network may include:
With a partner and coach to guide you through challenges and help you reach your goals, you’ll never feel alone again.
Unlock your personal potential as the owner of a successful, high-quality child care business.
Collaborating with a Child Care Health Consultant doesn’t just benefit the kids in your care. It’s also a boon for your business. A higher quality program equals higher enrollment and more referrals, ensuring that you can keep your doors open and grow your revenue.
