Self-Assessments help child care providers compare their practices to best-practice standards based on the most up-to-date research. Go NAPSACC’s best-practice standards for child care programs can help children up to age 5 develop healthy habits for eating, physical activity, and oral health. The Go NAPSACC self-assessment is the first step toward change. Go NAPSACC’s provider tools allows child care providers to complete and save their self-assessments online, then continue through the 5 Steps of Go NAPSACC by setting goals, creating action plans, and using favorite tips and materials to guide them along the way.
Each self-assessment includes specific how-to instructions on the first page.
