Quality Initiatives

Our quality initiatives promote and support practices and policies focused on social and emotional well-being, obesity prevention, oral health, and injury prevention.

Breastfeeding Friendly Recognition

This recognition allows child care programs to assess and improve policies and practices that contribute to creating a breastfeeding-friendly environment and culture.

Playground Inspection

We offer various assessments to early childhood programs that can help you understand current best practices, areas where improvements could be made, and how to take steps toward making changes.

Oral Health

Maintaining good oral health is more than just about those pretty smiles. We are proud to offer trainings, tools, and support to ensure every child receives the best start on maintaining those healthy smiles! 


Our grants are competitive opportunities for early childhood programs and offer important capital improvement funding.
