Safety, Nutrition, and Health Goals



As you read in the “Designing a Safety Policy” section in Chapter 2 (pp. 47–48) and pp. 24–38 of your course text, high-quality programs and environments for young children should strive to meet six goals:

1. Maximize children’s health status.
2. Minimize the risks to children’s health, safety, and well-being.
3. Teach and model good health practices and risk reduction for both children and adults.
4. Recognize the importance of guidelines, standards, and laws as they apply to the health, safety, and well-being of children.
5. Practice cultural competence.
6. Develop partnerships with families to provide a caring community.

Carefully consider each of these goals and select two that are of most interest to you.

With these thoughts in mind:

By Day 3:

Post a response to the following:


  • Identify the two goals you selected and explain in your own words why they are important to achieve in an early childhood environment.

  • Describe challenges you might encounter as you pursue these goals in your future work with children and families. How might you or another adult working with young children overcome these challenges? Draw on specific examples from the readings and, if possible, your own experiences to substantiate your thinking.
