Health Resources for Child Care Providers

Early childhood professionals who work with children need to stay current in their certifications for first aid and CPR. It is a requirement for any permitted family child care provider in Fairfax County. The Health Resource for Child Care Providers is not a complete list of companies that provide pediatric (infant and child) CPR and first aid training. You are encouraged to do your own research in selecting a company for these services. The Office for Children is not offering this list as a recommendation or endorsement.
