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.

🔍 Key Takeaways from Lissarette Nisnevich

Tips from Lissarette:

  • All children can catch up! The key is providing an environment that makes them feel safe, loved, and welcome.
  • It is okay for everyone (adults and kids) to feel their emotions, especially the ones that we tend to label as “bad”.
  • Create space to express emotions, be it physically or virtually. This helps with processing them and moving to the next step.
  • Focus on the future, instead of wishing for the past! COVID-19 has taught us that change can happen any time and the importance of being adaptable.

Audience Shoutouts!

Dorothy Amaechi
Safety and comfort first, before learning.

Ume Choudhry 
We’ve been open for over a month in NJ and the kids, special needs kids and teachers have been great! We spent time on virtual classrooms preparing our kids to come back. It seemed to be very successful. Compassion was huge with all the kids.

Lucinda Crawford
I think on e of the most important steps is to not expect anything to be the same as before COVID.

Inmaculada Acosta
It is very true! All emotions are Ok and we need to be aware of them in the children and respect each one of them.
