Chapter Child Care Contacts

The AAP has appointed Chapter Child Care Contacts (CCCCs) in each of its State Chapters to provide a network of pediatric child care experts who can mobilize efforts to improve the health and safety of children in child care and engage parents in discussions about quality care and their options. Each volunteer is a member of the Section on Early Education and Child Care and is appointed by the AAP Chapter to serve as a liaison between that chapter regarding early education/child care topics and initiatives.

Health professionals can work with their CCCC(s) to educate one another, create discussions on AAP recommended guidelines, improve health and safety practices, and advocate for quality child care.

Early education and child care professionals can also work with their CCCC(s) to increase collaboration on child care activities. Click here to learn how early education and child care professionals can work with other health professionals.

The information in this section of the Web site is intended for the AAP Chapter Child Care Contacts and their mentors. We’ve consolidated these resources in one place to help guide your efforts to improve the health and safety of children in child care.
