HEALTH AND SAFETY FIRST

Children learn best when they have consistent, nurturing relationships with adults who care, whether at home or away from home.

The Tennessee Child Care Resource & Referral Network employs 15 Health, Safety and Well-Being Quality Coaches who are located throughout the state to promote the health and safety practices in early care and education, promote developmental monitoring and screening information, and the social and emotional development of children with child care agencies, educators and families.

Newsletters

Each month, our HSWB coaches curate content that is related to their work. This content is compiled in a newsletter that is distributed to the child care facilities they serve. The newsletters include fun tips, healthy actions, and ideas for educator self-care. To download a copy of previous issues, click on the links below.
