How Do I Become a Child Care Health Consultant?

Being a CCHC can be a very rewarding experience. As a CCHC you will play a unique role in assisting early care and education providers in offering quality care in a safe and healthy environment. Your assistance will impact our most precious resource, our children, for generations to come. You will become part of an emerging statewide team of child care health consultants and be on the cutting edge of a national initiative to recognize this new type of early care and education trainer/consultant. The flyer below provides additional information that can be printed and shared.
