Care for Their Air is a free training to educate child care providers about the harmful effects of exposure to secondhand smoke.

This training curriculum was developed for child care directors and staff who work closely with parents, babies, and children. Those who participate will attain knowledge, skills, and resources to educate parents and children about the health benefits of being smoke-free. The smoke-free home materials included are easy for parents and children to understand and communicate the message that smoke-free living is healthier living.

We invite your facility and staff to take this training and hope you will find the material useful and valuable in guiding your efforts to educate families about the harmful effects of exposure to secondhand smoke and prevention practices. Each child care staff member who completes the training will be given one hour of continuing education credit.

Please complete the training request form so your facility may participate in this free training.
