As a pediatrician-led agency, we know how critical child care agencies are to help kids get on the right path to healthy lives.

But we also know that adopting these tools requires time, energy, and of course, money. That’s why we partner with child care agencies to make adopting best practices as easy as possible. In fact, Docs For Tots can attest to your agency’s adoption of such vital practices so parents – and the public – know the value of your service in helping kids thrive. Find out how.
High quality early care and education has long lasting benefits to children and society. When young children are in high-quality childcare settings, there are positive impacts on school success, and health and well-being.
Seventy percent of children from birth to age five are in some form of child care. Not all child care facilities are created equal, leaving some children in settings that fail to best support all aspects of children’s healthy development, including their social-emotional, early learning, and health needs. For many families, quality child care is far too costly to access.
Docs for Tots believes that there are opportunities to increase doctors’ engagement in improving access to quality early care and education. We also believe that early care and education settings have the potential to improve children’s health.
