TOP Star is a free Continuing Education Program for childcare providers designed to help providers improve the quality of the nutrition, physical activity, and breastfeeding environments in their child care facility. From birth to age 5 a child's brain develops more than any other time in life. Early childhood years are critical to supporting a child's development and growth that can encourage life lasting healthy habits.

Child care providers will have access to free resources including: online training modules, quarterly newsletters, & monthly lesson plans all through your local TOP Star consultant. Endorsement is valid for three years.
Benefits for Families:
Parents benefit from the TOP Star program by knowing their child is in a healthy environment, parents will also receive quarterly newsletters that have been distributed to participating centers to offer ideas and information of ways to bring these healthy habits into the home.
