Child Care Aware of Kansas is excited to partner closely with the Kansas Department of Health and Environment team to launch NEW supports for licensed child care programs! Child Care Health Consultants are available to help child care programs analyze the results of a Self-Assessment and identify ways to reduce the spread of illnesses within the program.
Please remember this program is NEW – we are working hard to develop information and meet your needs during this time. Please be patient. Check back regularly!
Check out the Child Care Health Consultation Pathway for an overview of the program.
To get started, follow these FOUR steps:
Child Care Programs are asked to complete, to the extent possible, a Self-Assessment before scheduling a consultation with a Child Care Health Consultant.

Child care programs that complete a Self-Assessment and receive a coaching consultation from a Child Care Health Consultant are eligible to apply for a health & safety grant.

The Grant Application will be ready for use (in paper (English & Spanish) OR electronic format) on approximately September 28th.
You will receive notification of grant approval from CCAKS.
We anticipate that the grant approvals will take 2-3 weeks for finalization once a completed grant application is submitted.
