Childcare Physical Activity and Nutrition Program (CPAN)


  • Childcare Physical Activity and Nutrition program gives kids a healthy foundation - Child care providers are invited to participate in an exclusive physical activity and nutrition program. We know you care about the health of the children, but it’s sometimes difficult to make healthy choices because there’s only so much time in a day—and it’s usually spent running after children. That’s why we’re extending an invitation for you to participate in the Childcare Physical Activity and Nutrition Program, a fun and easy way to help child care providers improve physical activity and nutrition.


  • You’ve got a team of professionals supporting you - You can count on Childcaring and Security Health Plan to share their resources and support you with implementing this program in your facility.


  • We’ll help you every step of the way - The Childcare Physical Activity and Nutrition Program is designed and proven to be user friendly, time and resource efficient, and easily integrated into your busy day. Did we mention that participation is completely FREE? You and a trained health consultant from Childcaring will work together for 4-6 months to help young children ages 2 to 5, find ways to integrate more physical activity and healthier foods into their lives. You can count on support every step of the way as you complete the five steps of this program.
