Description:

Early childhood is a critical time in human development. Understanding and supporting children's wellness early on can make the greatest impact on physical, social and emotional, and cognitive health throughout childhood and adulthood. This book provides a comprehensive collection of checklists and research-based information to help you evaluate and improve wellness in your program, making it a safe, happy place for each person—child and adult—who passes through the doors. 

The checklists cover six areas of wellness:

  • Nutrition and healthy eating habits
  • Physical activity and fitness
  • Emotional health and resilience
  • Physical health
  • Safety and risk management
  • Leadership

The completed checklists can be used to create an action plan to improve your program's approach to wellness. From Redleaf Press.
