Healthy Living Guidelines for Early Learning and Child Care Centres on PEI
The PEI Healthy Eating Alliance have partnered with the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development, Department of Health and Wellness, Early Childhood Development Association, early childhood educators and other key stakeholders to develop the “Healthy Living Guidelines for Early Learning and Child Care Centres on PEI”. The purpose of the Guidelines is to provide effective direction, meaningful advice, and where appropriate, specific instructions on how to create the healthiest and safest environments possible for children.
To support the implementation of the "Healthy Living Guidelines for Early Learning and Child Care Centres on PEI", the Healthy Eating Alliance created a "Healthy Eating Toolkit for Early Years: A toolkit for parents, early childhood educators and caregivers of young children". This toolkit was developed with funding from the Children's Secretariat Partnerships for Children. The toolkit can be accessed through the Resource section of our website.
