The Child Care Health Consultation (CCHC) Program is an initiative reaching child care providers and children enrolled in day care. The CCHC Program provides health, safety and nutrition information through consultation, training and health promotion activities. The CCHC Program uses professional nurses to coordinate and deliver these services. Utilizing local public health agency nurses and other subject matter experts (e.g., Communicable Disease, Immunizations, WIC, and Environmental staff), the program offers one of the largest trainer networks in the state.
Local public health agency CCHCs began using the Missouri Workshop Calendar effective January 1, 2015. This means that training for clock hours provided by the CCHCs is approved through the Missouri Workshop Calendar and can be counted towards child care providers annual clock hour training requirements.
