This innovative, interactive health program for children ages birth to five is available to adults working in child care centers, child care homes, and schools across North Carolina .  

It's evidence-based and evidence-informed messages are carried out through five cuddly and adventurous characters.  Using these characters as their guides, children can engage in playful experiences, interact with an story, explore their natural surroundings, and much more.
