Help Families Find Child Care
Finding the right early education and child care program is one of the most important and challenging decisions that parents make in caring for their young child. The prenatal visit is the best time to begin discussing child care for the baby. Pediatricians can help parents find child care programs where the child’s safety and health are appropriately supported.

National Resource Center for Health and Safety in Child Care and Early Education (NRC)
Use the National Resource Center for Health and Safety in Child Care and Early Education Web site to compare the AAP national recommendations/guidelines (which can be found in Caring for Our Children: National Health and Safety Performance Standards, Guidelines for Out-of-Home Child Care Programs) against your state child care regulations to identify areas for improvement.

National Training Institute for Child Care Health Consultants
The National Training Institute for Child Care Health Consultants supports the health and safety of young children in child care settings through the development of a national child care health consultant training program.
