Child Care Aware® of America’s white paper, Paths to a Healthier Child Care Workforce, covers the health and wellness habits of child care workers employed in child care settings. The white paper is designed to identify child care workers’ perception of wellness, learn about work-related barriers to healthy active living, and explore ways to entice workers to participate in workplace and community-based wellness programs.

To gain perspective on health and wellness among child care workers, CCAoA staff conducted focus groups with child care workers to learn about their health status and any barriers they have to healthy active living.

Read the Paths to a Healthier Child Care Workforce white paper to explore findings from our focus groups and to learn about strategies and recommendations for staff wellness.
