ECE Recognition

On behalf of the Steering Committee, we would like to thank you for your commitment to helping children get a healthy start in life. We invite you to join us and many partners working together to ensure all Floridians are healthy.
Early care and education providers across Florida are joining the movement to integrate best practices into their programs. We are pleased to announce the Florida Early Care and Education (ECE) Recognition Program. The goal is to encourage early child care programs to take proactive, voluntary steps to improve program practices and policies related to encouraging healthy behaviors for children and families. The Florida ECE Recognition Program is open to early care and education centers that are licensed in the state of Florida. Recognized centers will receive a certificate to be prominently displayed, free marketing on the Florida ECE Recognition website, and discounts on supplies. The program may also be highlighted in the media and at community events.

Florida’s ECE Recognition Program works to encourage the promotion of best practices related to:

  • Healthy Child Nutrition
