Health Consultants


The Council’s Child Care Health Consultants are registered nurses who partner with child care centers, group and family child care homes, and school-age programs to foster safe and healthy environments for children. The Consultants act as a resource to:

  • Develop a health care plan for the child care program.

  • Provide training and education about health related issues.

  • Create polices and procedures to help keep children and adults

  • safe and healthy.

  • Answer questions about common child care health related issues.

The Child Care Council’s Child Care Health Consultants are also certified Medication Administration (MAT) Instructors.
