Asthma in Child Care Facilities

In 2004, the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) Asthma Program brought together a group of agencies involved in child care, with a child care provider and a parent, to develop a resource guide for child care providers that have children with asthma in their facilities.  This group included members of the ODH Help Me Grow program, the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services Child Care Licensing Bureau, the American Lung Association® and the Ohio Asthma Coalition.

This group produced Managing Asthma in Ohio Child Care Facilities: a resource guide.  This resource guide contains user-friendly forms for parents and child care providers, information about asthma and environmental tools for reducing asthma triggers in the child care environment.

The resource guide may be downloaded in four sections from the links at the side.  Please reproduce copies as needed for your use.

This publication was supported by Grant/Cooperative Agreement Number U59EH000214-01 Under Program Announcement EH06-604 “Addressing Asthma from a Public Health Perspective” from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The contents of this Child Care Resource Guide are solely the responsibility of the authors and do not necessarily represent the official views of the CDC.
