Description

The Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) is a nutrition education and meal reimbursement program helping providers serve nutritious and safely prepared meals and snacks to children and adults in day care settings. This dataset includes the names and locations of participating day care sites and whether or not the site is Breastfeeding Friendly Certified with CACFP, participating in the Eat Well Play Hard in Child Care Settings (EWPHCCS) project, or participating in the Eat Well Play Hard in Day Care Homes (EWPHDCH) project. This dataset excludes Child and Adult Care Food Program participation provided at homeless shelters and legally-exempt day care home providers. Not all counties in NYS are serviced by the grantees implementing the project EWPHCSS. The EWPHDCH project is currently limited to the areas served by the contracted agencies. The Child and Adult Care Food Program dataset is related to the Child Care Related Programs dataset on the www.Open.ny.gov website, however this dataset includes additional nutrition information. The Office of Children and Family Services (OCFS) is currently working to update the Child Care Related Programs dataset on a more frequent schedule with the OPEN NY team. OCFS and DOH will then be able to synchronize in the near future. Temporarily, DOH has omitted addresses for regulated child care providers that provide home care since this information is available on www.Open.ny.gov by using this link: https://data.ny.gov/Human-Services/Child-Care-Regulated-Programs/cb42-qumz.

Notes
The participating sites in the dataset are based on approved applications to the Child and Adult Care Food Program. Applications are reviewed daily and program participation is frequently changing. Participating programs in CACFP are child care centers, including Head Start centers, outside school hours programs serving children through age twelve in licensed or registered non-residential settings, after school programs providing educational or enrichment programming for children up to nineteen years of age in low income areas, community-based adult day care centers that are approved by federal, state or local authorities to provide day care services to functionally impaired adults through individualized care plans and home-based family and group child care. The EWPHCCS (Eat Well Play Hard in Child Care Settings) project provides funding to implement a nutrition and physical activity curriculum designed for pre-school children and their parents. The EWPH-DCH (East Well Play Hard in Day Care Homes) project was designed as an educational and environmental change program with DCH (Day Care Home) providers as the primary target audience and the children and their parents as the secondary target audiences. This dataset is currently updated quarterly.
Disclaimers
Limitations
This dataset excludes Child and Adult Care Food Program participation provided at homeless shelters and legally-exempt day care home providers. Not all counties in NYS are serviced by the grantees implementing the project EWPHCSS. The EWPHDCH project is currently limited to the areas served by the contracted agencies. Funding for the EWPHDCH project ends 9/30/2013. The Child and Adult Care Food Program dataset is related to the Child Care Related Programs dataset on the Open NY website, but includes additional nutrition information. The Office of Children and Family Services is currently working to update the Child Care Related Programs dataset on a more frequent schedule than the Child and Adult Care Food Program dataset. The agencies are working to synchronize the update schedule in the near future. We appreciate your patience in the interim. Temporarily, we have omitted addresses for regulated child care providers that provide home care since this information is available on Open.ny.gov by using this link: https://data.ny.gov/Human-Services/Child-Care-Regulated-Programs/cb42-qumz.
