Healthy Child Care Iowa - Home

Healthy Child Care Iowa is publicly funded to improve the health and safety of Iowa children while they are enrolled in child care and early education settings.

A toll-free talk line for families and child care providers is available at 800-369-2229. Child care providers may call the talkline for health related questions or be connected with one of Iowa's child care nurse consultants (PDF). Child care providers are encouraged to inform families about the talkline. Families may use the talkline for confidential health information and referral. Multiple language interpretations are available.
