Program Materials

Go NAP SACC provides early care and education programs with quality, evidence-informed materials. Here you can find our updated Go NAP SACC self-assessments as well as our original NAP SACC materials.

Go NAP SACC Self-Assessments

The Go NAP SACC self-assessments help early care and education programs compare their nutrition and physical activity practices to best practice standards. The assessments employ the most up-to-date research on how early care and education programs can help children ages 0 to 5 develop healthy eating and activity habits.

The Go NAP SACC interactive tool allows early care and education programs to complete and save their self-assessments online, then continue through the 5 Steps of NAP SACC by creating action plans, setting goals, and using favorite tips and materials to help them along the way.
