PowerPoint Presentations

Are you planning to present on health and safety in early education and child care? Why start from scratch?

To better equip health care professionals, including child care health consultants, with the resources to educate colleagues and early education and child care professionals, we have developed PowerPoint presentations on different topics that can be customized to meet participants' needs. Additional information is provided for the speaker in the "Notes" area of each presentation.
