Many children in our country spend all or part of their days in group day care while their parents work or go to school.
These children are not only at risk for day-care-related illnesses, but also may lack preventive health care because their parents have time constraints or financial barriers.
A group of nursing faculty members found that by collaborating with early childhood educators, accessible and cost-effective health care could be provided to children at a campus day-care site.
This collaboration allowed for the early detection of problems, thereby reducing barriers to learning.
Furthermore, by entering a day-care system, nurses found opportunities to conduct health education and promotion that had a positive impact on children, parents, and day-care staff.
