Early Care and Education Programs
Early Care and Education programs (ECE) play an important role in helping children develop healthy habits that will last a lifetime. Let’s Go! works with ECE programs across Maine and in Mt. Washington Valley, New Hampshire to increase healthy eating and physical activity. We do this by helping providers create environments where the healthy choice is the easy choice. Our local coordinators offer training on the Let’s Go! evidence-based Strategies for Success, and can assist ECE providers in the writing of simple, effective policies to help sustain the 5-2-1-0 healthy habits.
The Let’s Go! program is flexible and can be easily woven into your existing structure, whether you’re running an in-home day care or part of a large center. Coordinators help you assess your program environment, identify areas for improvement, and implement an action plan to meet your unique goals.
Registered sites receive a free toolkit full of resources for staff and families, personal assistance from a local coordinator, and training opportunities. By partnering with Let’s Go! you’ll join a network of hundreds of sites just like yours, working to improve the health of our children.
