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.

Whether you’ve been away for 1 month for summer break or 1 week after a holiday center closure, coming back to your classroom means it’s time to start fresh and revamp your classroom and your HiMama account. We’ve narrowed down the must-do’s for every center director and classroom educator to do before the first child returns to the classroom. 

If you’re a little lost or a little nervous, we’ve got you! Contact one of our support team members or customer success managers and we’ll help you get everything in order.

✅ Are You A New director Using HiMama? Let Us know!

We want to make sure our information is up to date and that all of your directors/admins are comfortable with the program so please reach out to us if you’re new to the HiMama family!

✅ Check Out the Logins & Configurations Page

Auto send, classroom names, passwords, e-signature configuration, and more! Check out this page when you’re logged in to and customize your center.

✅ Watch the Director Webinar

Are you a new director or need a refresher? Attend a webinar, available in-app any time! This allows you to understand the product easily in case any educators have one-off questions. We’ll make sure they’re a pro too.

✅ New Teachers?

If you have any new educators make sure they watch the teacher webinar so they’re a pro with HiMama. The webinar is about 25 minutes in length and can be replayed, stopped, started, and accessed from any mobile device or desktop computer.

✅ Fill Out the Menus And Calendars

Families can see menus and calendars online so make sure yours are up to date so everyone is in the loop.

✅ Graduate Children

Have children who left your center? Graduate them! Familie will still be able to see the photos and daily reports but they will no longer show up on your classroom attendance list.

✅ Get Logged In!

Each classroom will have their own unique username and password. Your classroom will share the username and password on your communal tablet or on your individual devices. You can be logged in at the same time with the same username and password so you can see updates your other team members make throughout the day even if you’re not physically together.

✅ Add In the New Children

Have new children joining you? They’ll need a profile ASAP and it can be done with a couple of clicks. Once you create a profile, add the parent’s emails—remember: this will invite them to HiMama right away so make sure their email is correctly entered.

✅ Make Sure Families Have the HiMama App Downloaded

Parents will want to receive the daily photo updates and reports so make sure all of your families download the HiMama app to see updates in real-time. Here’s how you can announce it to your families

✅ Breathe!
