High-quality child care produces a stimulating, secure and loving atmosphere for the little one.

Focusing on children's wellbeing and ecological exposures in child care centers is Essential for several reasons: Since they display exploratory behaviors that put them in direct contact with contaminated surfaces, they're more likely to be vulnerable to some contaminants found. They're also less developed immunologically, physiologically, and neurologically and are more prone to the negative effects of toxins and chemicals. Children spend a whole lot of time in child care settings. Many babies and young children spend as many as 50 hours each week, in child care.

Nationally, 13 million children, or 65 percent of U.S. kids, spend some part of the afternoon in child care and at California alone, roughly 1.1 million children five decades or younger attend child care. In this exact same condition, many adults might also be subjected as roughly 146,000 employees work 40 hours or more a week child care centers. Child care environments include substances which may be harmful for kids. Recent studies suggest that lots of child care environments might contain pesticides, allergens, volatile organic compounds from cleaning agents and sanitizers, and other contaminants which may be toxic to children's wellbeing.

Nevertheless, little is understood about what environmental and chemical exposures they might be getting in these configurations. To fill this gap, we quantified. Outcomes of the study were reported on the California Air Resources Board. Our findings help inform policies to lower accidents to children, encourage training and workshops to educate child care providers about methods to lower children's environmental exposures (ex. Using integrated pest management to decrease pesticide usage ), and search for future research.

New for 2019

This year, for the first time ever HiMama is co-producing the Benchmark Survey with Kris Murray from the Child Care Success Company. This partnership has helped expand the reach and focus of the report to provide even more thorough and meaningful data that is critical for childcare providers to know.

In particular, extra attention was given towards staffing, including motivation techniques, turnover rates, salaries and staffing levels. With employee burnout being such a pervasive problem in the industry, it was important for the 2019 report to provide more insight on this issue to help understand how others are affected and where efforts should be placed moving forward.

Key Findings

Some of the main findings in the 2019 Benchmark Report include:

  • Centers have a median capacity of 80 children.
  • 48% of students enrolled are preschool age.
  • 57% of respondents have less staff employed than they need.
  • Customer satisfaction is the #1 ranked priority.
