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 Chazz Lewis

  • Be aware of the emotions of the children right now and create experiences for them, let them be out in the rain, and jump in the puddles, and play the floor is lava (safely)!
  • Replace screen time with sensory play and get them outside as much as possible!
  • Plant the seed to help children visualize what will happen next. Use a visual timer for virtual classes to help children anticipate transitions.
  • Be real and validate how the children feel. 
  • Fidget toys can help children focus and self regulate. Especially those who are doing virtual learning.

🌟Audience Shoutouts!

:speaking_head_in_silhouette:Lucinda – On those days when you are feeling down think of one positive thing. One simple thing that puts a smile on your face. You might have to dig deep to find it but it is there. 

:speaking_head_in_silhouette: Elena – We call parents, often encourage them to send us the picture of children participating in daily activities that we post on Facebook. We also ask parents to send us a picture of the process of children coloring, reading, listening to music, and playing outside. 


:speaking_head_in_silhouette:Rose – The children here are doing very well! The COVID experience is different but we are working together and learning in a new way.
