SNAP-Ed provides direct education at Early Childcare Centers, such as Head Start and Early Head Start. Our Community Workers use evidence based curriculum to teach children about healthy eating and being active using engaging lessons and activities. They also provide education to the parents so the lessons provided in the classroom can be carried out at home.

Our Unit Educator and Program Coordinator work together to create organization changes in Early Childshood Centers. Using the NAPSACC Assessment, the policies, practices and environment of an EC Center is assessed for strengths and opportunities for improvement.

Technical assistance is provided to make changes that encourage healthy behaviors. Together, direct education and organization level changes in Early Childcare help provide our youth with a healthier start in life.
