Item #: 9905
# of Pages:68
Health includes complete physical, oral, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. To benefit from education and maintain quality of life, children need to be as healthy as possible and to be able to depend on adults—who also are as healthy as possible—to make healthy choices for them and to teach them to make healthy choices for themselves. This resource focuses on NAEYC's "Health" Program Standard.
Updated in 2008, this is one of nine booklets addressing the Standards and Criteria specific to NAEYC Accreditation of early childhood education programs.
