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 Alyssa Blask Campbell

CEO of Seed & Sew LLC

  • Determine YOUR needs to ensure how you can show up as the most regulated human
  • Remember, children will mirror your emotions. Make sure you’re regulated as an adult first and BRING the calm to them
  • Self-care can be about going to the bathroom without a kid on your body, setting boundaries with yourself and your kids, drinking water!! Self-care can be small but very powerful
  • To help children transition back to the center, use visual aids, and allowing children to have hard emotions when they do arrive back
  • Allow children to feel their feelings and don’t rush them out of it
  • Hold space for them to know it’s okay to feel the way they feel
  • Movement is huge for children (and adults!)
