Fit and Healthy Kids is a team of Early Childcare experts from across the United States who offer online training opportunities. The programs feature diverse experts sharing evidence-based practices, resources, ideas, and the latest in research. Our goal is to foster quality early learning experiences for children birth through 8 years old. Early Childhood classes that fit your time schedule. These classes are designed with you in mind.

Each training incorporates some aspect of Early Learning Guidelines: Birth to five learning and development standards. There are seven domains which are: social and emotional development, approaches to learning, health and physical development, language and literacy development, mathematics, science, and creative arts. The Fit and Healthy Kids trainings incorporate one or more of these domain topics in the session and address how childcare providers can address each topic in their natural environment and daily routine.

Vision Statement

Parents, Caregivers, and Early Childhood Professionals will have access to resources, trainings, and professional development that will promote the overall development of children and support caregivers in providing quality learning experiences, age-appropriate educational activities, and supportive environments for young children.

There is no greater reward than supporting the development of young children and promoting family wellbeing. We leverage University research and resources to enhance high-quality learning experiences for children, families, and early childhood professionals. We partner within the national Extension system and beyond, we enrich the field of early childcare and we educate—helping children and families thrive in safe, healthy, and supportive environments.
