Experimental: Intervention group
Centers in this group will be granted immediate access to the Go NAP SACC website following randomization with minimal support from a local technical assistance provider. The center director will have 4 months to use Go NAPSACC tools.
Behavioral: Go NAP SACC
Go NAP SACC is a suite of online tools designed to help child care programs improve their nutrition environment. Tools include: self-assessment, goal setting, action planning, and tips and materials. In addition to these online tools, local technical assistance providers offer center directors an orientation on how to use Go NAP SACC and minimal ongoing technical assistance.
No Intervention: Control group
During the study, centers in this group will receive no intervention. However, they will be granted delayed access to the Go NAP SACC website and technical assistance support after post-intervention measures are collected.
- Change in EPAO-SR Scores from Baseline to Post-intervention [ Time Frame: Measures collected at baseline (2-4 weeks prior to the intervention) and post-intervention (1-3 weeks following the intervention) ]Nutrition-related environmental characteristics will be assessed using the EPAO-SR, integrating data from the center director, child care teachers, and trained staff (reviewing policy documents).Data from all components is used in scoring. Item responses are used to derive variables assessing compliance with 42 nutrition best practices (BPs). Each nutrition BP variable is scored on a 4-point scale (0-3), where higher scores indicate closer BP compliance. Nutrition BP variables are then sorted into one of 7 environmental components: foods provided (12), beverages provided (5), feeding practices (8), feeding environment (8), menus (1), education & professional development (6), or policy (1). Environmental summary scores are calculated by averaging scores from relevant nutrition BP variables; hence, summary scores range from 0 to 3. An overall nutrition score is calculated by summing the 7 environmental summary scores; hence overall nutrition scores range from 0 to 21.
