As part of its ongoing commitment to providing professional development opportunities for the child care and early education workforce, Child Care Aware® of America has announced that its April 11 Health Aware event will be complimentary for child care providers.

Part of the 2013 Child Care Aware® of America National Policy Symposium April 10-13 in Washington, D.C., Health Aware is a special event promoting healthy eating and physical activity in child care programs. This “fee-free” offering for providers comes just a month before Provider Appreciation Day on May 10, which recognizes child care providers, teachers and other educators of young children everywhere.

The Health Aware expo features health and wellness experts from Nemours, Let’s Move! Child Care and other organizations; demonstrations from sponsors like SoyNut Butter and FoodSource; and two 60-minute trainings led by Dr. Linda Carson, founder and CEO of Choosy Kids, LLC, a company devoted to developing healthy preferences early in life. Training participants will be awarded clock hours.

Attendees at this FREE event will also receive a one-year membership in Child Care Aware® of America and have the opportunity to win prizes and giveaways.

Register here now -- deadline is April 5!
