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 Kiah and Ria

  • Holidays around this time can have a huge focus on religion and belief. Consider the symbols around each holiday if you’re not keen on having the religious aspect.
  • It’s all about learning, even as an educator! Taking time to check your bias as you learn more about different cultural beliefs is also important.
  • Take the time to involve your families. Ask them what holidays they celebrate this way you can celebrate throughout the whole year and plan for appropriate activities.
  • Celebrations can be a unique experience for your classrooms!
  • Make sure you have all the facts and don’t be shy to seek help from people who celebrate certain holidays. You don’t want to instill the tourist approach in children.
  • Take time to invest in quality books, and plan activities around them. This way children can relate to the story and you create more meaning behind the activity.
