CSHEL wishes to thank CSHEL member Dr. Danette Glassy of Mercer Island Pediatrics and BestStart Washington for supporting this website.
Our purpose is to create and sustain a representative voice for children's health and safety in early care and education settings.
In 1988, the Washington State legislature created the Child Care Coordinating Council (CCCC) in an effort to bring key players from various state agencies, early care advocates, business, and other interested parties together to focus the legislative agenda around child care issues. This coalition began as the Health and Safety subcommittee of the CCCC, tasked with advising the legislature on issues impacting health and safety in child care settings. The group was legislatively mandated and included representatives from the licensing agency (Department of Social and Health Services, now Department of Early Learning), Department of Health, Child Care Resource & Referral, HeadStart, ECEAP (Early Childhood Education and Assistance Program), local health jurisdictions, and others.Learn more
