The Child Care Injury Prevention Program (CCIPP) offers a comprehensive program that provides child care professionals and parents with education, materials and resources needed to decrease the unintentional injury and death rate in children ages 14 and under.
The Child Care Injury Prevention Program is currently funded by the the City of Tempe and United Way of Yuma County.
Preventable injuries take an enormous financial, emotional and social toll not just on the injured children and families, but also on society as a whole. Unintentional injury is the leading cause of death among children ages 14 and under in the United States, claiming more than 9,000 child lives annually. More than 16 percent of unintentional injuries among children result in permanent disability.
