About Us: Healthy Child Care


To enhance health and safety of children in licensed child care settings.


The Healthy Child Care Initiative was originally funded by the Healthy Child Care North Carolina Campaign which is co-sponsored by the Division of Public Health, Division of Child Development, and the North Carolina Pediatric Society. Pediatricians and staff from local health departments are encouraged to provide health consultation to child care providers in their respective communities.

The C&Y Branch Healthy Child Care Initiative provides:

  1. Health and safety information for child care providers through the maintenance of a resource library, development of written materials, and training programs. These resources are housed at the NC Child Care Health and Safety Resource Center and information is accessible through the NC Family Health Resource Line at 1-800-367-2229.
  2. Training, consultation and technical assistance on child care and public health issues for local health departments, licensure consultants and health care providers.
  3. Consultation and technical assistance to local child care health consultants.
