Step Up to Quality assists participating programs and providers in improving quality and increasing positive child outcomes, including nutrition and physical activity outcomes.

Nutrition and Physical Activity Self-Assessment for Child Care, known also as Go NAPSACC, is a trusted process that helps child care centers and homes go the extra mile to support children’s healthy eating and physical activity. Go NAPSACC also provides free resources to equip child care programs with the education, skills, and tools necessary to achieve their goals and earn points related to health, nutrition, and physical activity. Go NAPSACC works with child care programs who provide care to children from the ages of birth to 5 years old.

Step Up to Quality programs interested in achieving Step 2 must complete the Go NAPSACC Pre Self–Assessment.

Additional Go NAPSACC elements are available for programs at Step 3 and higher. A Go NAPSACC consultant can help providers develop actions plans and reach goals related to health, nutrition and physical activity.
