Child Care Health Consultations

The Linn County Health Department offers nurse consultant services to area childcare providers.  Childcare providers include daycare centers, Head Start, licensed and non-licensed homes. These services include training for clock hours and other educational services on nutrition, health, and safety related issues. The nurse consultant also offers age-appropriate health promotional programs to children in the childcare setting.

This program is made possible through funding from the Title V federal block grant in conjunction with the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services and Missouri Local Public Health Agencies.

The program was developed to promote safe, healthy, and developmentally appropriate environments for all children in childcare. Services are available at no cost for childcare providers, families of children enrolled in childcare and children enrolled in childcare.

If you have further questions or would like more information, please contact our CCHC Consultant, Alisha Ehrich, at
