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.

🎤Our Special Guest!

Lissarette Nisnevich

“Born and raised in the Dominican Republic with fully bilingual education, I started my career as an assistant teacher at the age of 15. Over the years, I was blessed with opportunities to travel the world teaching ESL, designing curriculums, and doing volunteer work in local communities. These opportunities not only enriched my understanding of the world but also widened my horizons as an educator.

With more than a decade of experience in 30+ different countries and a Masters in Early Childhood, I settled in New York City and opened a Daycare center and a Preschool of my own. During my travels, I’ve tested my ability to plan, design, and implement curriculums in different regions of the world. As a Director, I am passionate about the work I do within my community.”

🧪Key Learning Outcomes from Lissarette

  • Resilience is an ability or a skill that you are not born with but you develop and build over time. 
  • Resilient children are those who bounce back but they approach challenges in a healthy way. They are confident to take risks in life and understand how to grow from making mistakes. 
  • As an adult, you model how to manage emotions in a healthy way.
  • The first three years are the most critical, and so starting early makes a difference in a child’s future. Everything affects the adult that a child becomes; when we start any skill at an early age we have a better chance later in life. 
  • It’s human to go through a range of emotions at a healthy pace and a child is still growing to become capable of managing all these emotions.
  • We as educators are the regulated self to help meet the dis-regulated child to help come back to time and space. 
  • Embrace mistakes! It means you are trying and you’re trying new things. 
  • Help children to focus their energy in a positive direction and use it for a positive outcome.
  • Every educator is a rockstar! 
  • A resilient child will take healthy risks, manage their emotions in a healthy way, and is able to include others. Empathy is part of resilience; understanding when you need to step back as an adult and ask the right questions is the hard part, but part of building that resilience.
