Child care providers across the country are getting their children up and moving and off to a healthy start. They’ve enthusiastically adopted the recommendations of Let’s Move! Child Care (LMCC):
Here are some of the innovative strategies they’ve adopted:
States and territories have also embraced LMCC. As part of our Let’s Move! Child Care State Challenge, they have competed to have the greatest percentage of their providers registered for the effort and taking the online quiz. As of now, there are over 5,000 providers registered nationwide.
In upcoming weeks, there will be two other opportunities in which you might be able to support activities for LMCC. The first opportunity is Provider Appreciation Day, which will occur on May 11, 2012. The second opportunity is the LMCC One Year Anniversary Celebration, which is set to occur in June 2012. More information for those two opportunities will be provided on our website soon.
