Child Care Health Consultation (CCHC) service supports Keystone STARS practitioners in implementing best practices in health and safety through the use of a registered nurse. The Child Care Health Consultant uses the age-appropriate Environment Rating Scales and other tools to assess health and safety policy and practice at an ECE or SAC facility. The Consultant then works with the practitioner to develop an action plan that addresses challenges and areas for improvement.
