Child Care Providers
Child care providers play an important role in helping children develop healthy habits that will last a lifetime. Let’s Go! 5-2-1-0 works with child care programs across Maine and in Mt. Washington Valley, New Hampshire to increase healthy eating and physical activity. We do this by helping providers create environments where the healthy choice is the easy choice. Our local coordinators offer training in the Let’s Go! evidence-based Strategies for Success, and can assist child care providers in the writing of simple, effective policies that help sustain the 5-2-1-0 healthy habits.
The 5-2-1-0 program is flexible and can be easily woven into your existing structure, whether you’re running an in-home day care or part of a large child care center. We help you asses what you’re doing well, identify areas for improvement, and implement an action plan to meet your unique goals.
Registered sites receive a free toolkit full of resources for staff and families, personal assistance from a local coordinator, and on-site and off-site training opportunities. By getting involved with Let’s Go! you’ll join a network of hundreds of sites just like yours, working to improve the health of our children.
