Supporting Mental Health & Well-Being through Child Care Settings

CTIPP offered a national webinar to make the case for early childhood settings to become equipped to respond to stress and trauma as it happens. The discussion included a description of how the adults and children in early childhood settings have been impacted by the pandemic, and featured case example for using the “Toolkit for Staff and Child Well-Being in Early Childhood Settings.”


The Toolkit is designed to ease the process of developing a continuum of training, reflective coaching, and checklist to build the capacity for supporting relational health throughout early childhood care and education systems. There are several provisions in the American Rescue Plan Act that could fund this model in states or localities.
