Nemours has released a new set of case studies developed as part of the CDC-funded National Early Care & Education Learning Collaborative project. For the last five years, Nemours and the CDC worked with states and communities to integrate support for childhood obesity prevention into their early childhood systems. Using the CDC’s Spectrum of Opportunities, state and community grantees receive technical assistance to encourage system changes that support best practices in childhood obesity prevention in child care, pre-kindergarten and Head Start settings in centers, homes and schools.

Each case study highlight successes, challenges and lessons learned.

  • Case studies are available for the following states and communities: Arizona, North/Central Florida, South Florida, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri, New Jersey and Virginia.
  • Case studies are also available for the following Spectrum areas: Child & Adult Food Care Program, child care licensing, Quality Rating and Improvement Systems (QRIS), Professional Development, and Emerging Opportunities.
