New CCDF Health and Safety Requirements

The reauthorization of the Child Care Development Block Grant (CCDBG) in 2014 included provisions related to health and safety requirements for all administrators and caregivers with direct access to children.All administrators and caregivers will be required to obtain health and safety training covering the following topics: 

  • Prevention and control of infectious disease (including immunizations);
  • Prevention of sudden infant death syndrome/sudden unexplained infant death and the use of safe sleep practices;
  • Administration of medication;
  • Prevention of and response to emergencies due to food and allergic reactions;
  • Building and physical premises safety, including identification of and protection from hazards, bodies of water, and vehicular traffic;
  • Prevention of shaken baby syndrome, abusive head trauma, and child maltreatment;
  • Emergency preparedness and response planning for emergencies;
  • Handling and storage of hazardous materials and the appropriate disposal of bio contaminates;
  • Appropriate precautions of transporting children, if applicable;
  • Recognition and reporting of child abuse and neglect; and
  • Pediatric first aid and CPR procedures.

To fulfill this requirement all administrators and caregivers must obtain the health and safety training from a SEED approved entity. Currently, Better Kid Care is a SEED approved entity offering a package that covers all topics except recognition and reporting of child abuse and neglect and First Aid/CPR. Better Kid Care training is offered on-line in English and Spanish. Click here to see a current list of approved health and safety trainings.
