We serve parents, grandparents, and others concerned about raising children by providing resources and information about children's safety, well-being, and learning. Covering such topics as finding the best child care, creating a safe-sleep environment, and childhood development, we offer the latest research-based articles, videos, and additional resources.
One of the most important tools you need as a parent is information, and we're here to help. The topics you'll find on this site are in response to feedback from parents across Tennessee on what you want to know more about and in response to some of the issues threatening the health of Tennessee's children.
Talk to your relatives, healthcare providers, child care providers, teachers, babysitters, and neighbors—anyone and everyone who affects the health and safety of your child—about these topics. Together, we're working to make Tennessee's children safer and healthier.
