NRC Goals for Licensing Toolkits to Limit Screen Time in Child Care:
- To develop tools and products to support states’ child care licensing personnel and child care providers in ensuring environments that promote healthy weight by focusing on high-impact standards of best practice related to reduced screen time
- To facilitate conversations among licensors, child care and early education providers, legislators, health professionals, and families
Administrators of State Licensing programs have numerous responsibilities. Developing and revising state licensing requirements are among the most important. In areas where new findings are rapidly accruing, it is difficult to be aware of all the research and information that may influence licensing requirements. This Licensing Toolkit is intended to assist Licensing Administrators as they develop and revise licensing requirements addressing guidelines for reduced screen time in the prevention of childhood obesity.1
The Toolkit consists of three components:
- Licensing Agency Action Sheet
- Child Care Provider Action Sheet
- Legislator Action Sheet
Here you will find suggested uses for each of the three Action Sheets.The NRC encourages you to find other uses for the Toolkit. Please let us know how you use them.You can email us at email@example.com. We will share your ideas with others in the professional licensing community.
