Looking for ways to keep children healthy and safe in early education and care settings?
Check out the webpage “Health and Safety in Child Care” on the website of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH).
DPH has collected links to information on a sweeping range of topics, including nutrition, physical activity, asthma, and the flu — as well as on hand washing, immunizations, and how to prepare for emergencies.
Click around the site and you’ll also find:
• a weather chart for safe outdoor play on hot and cold days
• information on preschool vision screening
• the pyramid model of social and emotional health
• the Department of Early Education and Care’s statement on cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting
There’s even information that can be shared with families.
So check out these resources and keep child care healthy and safe.
