Child Care Health Consultation

The Child Care Health Consultation (CCHC) Program is a collaborative program between Department of Elementary and Secondary Education’s Office of Childhood and Local Public Health Agencies (LPHAs) throughout Missouri. The purpose of the program is to enhance child care health, mental health, safety, and wellness practices for child care providers, children age newborn to kindergarten entry enrolled in child care, and their families, through the implementation of CCHC Program services. Missouri’s LPHAs provide CCHC program services to child care providers and the children in their care at little or no cost to child care providers, therefore giving the opportunity for all child care providers to care for children in the safest and healthiest environments possible.
