LiveWell Recognizes 8 Early Childhood Centers

LiveWell Greenville is proud to recognize the following eight early childhood providers, who have participated in a two- year pilot with the Go NAP SACC program, for their efforts in providing heathy eating and active living opportunities for the children they serve!

A Child’s Haven
Aldersgate Child Development Center
Buncombe St. United Methodist CDC
Christ Church Preschool
First Baptist Simpsonville Child Enrichment Center
Park Place Children’s Center
Pelham Road Baptist Church CDC
YMCA of Greenville at Judson Community Center

Collectively they have accomplished 53 policies, systems and environment improvements, in the areas of Healthy Eating and Active Living, across the eight sites and have positively affected over 1,200 children!

An example of polices adopted is; outside of nap and mealtimes, the longest that preschool children and toddlers are expected to remain continuously seated is 15 minutes. Likewise, others have set policies to prohibit taking away playtime or physical activity as punishment
This video highlights the changes that A Child’s Haven has made to its physical environment to impact healthy eating among their families.
We hope to continue to recognize these sites and many more as LiveWell Greenville’s Early Childcare Initiative grows.
