CATCHCOORDINATED APPROACH TO CHILD HEALTH
We can't do it alone.
By taking a collaborative approach to help children develop and sustain healthy eating and physical activity behaviors, we are working to feed their spirit, mind and body. We are giving them tools to not only succeed in school, but also in life.
By using the evidence-based Coordinated Approach to Child Health (CATCH) curriculum, we can provide targeted, memorable and understandle lessons that are reinforced through games, songs, and of course healthy snacks. These can then be reinforced at home -- even giving the child the opportunity to be the teacher to his/her adults, keeping the whole child as well as the whole family on the road to good health. In addition, partnering with Summit Education Initiative (SEI) is helping students achieve 90% or better school attendance and at or above grade level scores on Ohio State Testing.
CATCH (COORDINATED APPROACH TO CHILD HEALTH)
The Summit County CATCH Collaborative (SC3) partners are working together to help kids develop and sustain healthy behavioral habits during the foundational stages of childhood that are critical to long-term developmental success. Backed by 25 years of research, CATCH has been proven to launch kids and communities toward healthier lifestyles. It has the largest evidence base of any obesity prevention program and has been demonstrated nationwide to be the most cost-effective means of preventing obesity in an environment that's safe, fun, and easy to maintain.
