Description: This competency area addresses the knowledge and skills early childhood educators are expected to have to support children's physical, emotional, and mental health. The competency area was written with the understanding that early childhood educators will comply with the relevant sections of the California Code of Regulations, Title 22, that impact Community Care Licensing in California. A key concept in this competency area is that children's health encompasses overall fitness and well-being; it is not simply the absence of illness or injury.
