Professional Development

We offer many avenues for health consultants to engage in professional development to understand and enhance their practice.


Competencies are an essential part of a professional development system because they are a common set of standards, clear definitions about what knowledge is needed to provide quality services and serve as a solid foundation for practitioners. We partnered with statewide early childhood experts to develop a set of competencies for the practice of child care health consultation in Colorado.

CCHC Huddles

CCHC Huddles are a monthly opportunity to connect with peers from across the state and offer helpful information sharing to inform practice. Topics vary based on needs expressed through the CCHC Center Discussion Forum, calls, and emails coming into Healthy Child Care Colorado.



CCHC Seminars

The CCHC Leadership Team hosts quarterly seminars and invites expert speakers so that health consultants can learn about the latest developments in early childhood health that are relevant to their role. You also have the opportunity to meet and network with other health consultants and school nurses from across the state.

Participants receive a certificate for attending the seminar and additional resources. The seminar is offered at no cost and online participation are available.
