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.

In this webinar, we welcomed Stuart J Murphy, visual learning strategist, and author. Stuart dove into practical ideas for using visual models to prompt understanding mathematics in young children, while providing key ideas and insights on how to use stories to engage young children as they develop their literacy skills.

🎤Our Special Guest!

Stuart J Murphy, Visual Learning Strategist, and Author

Stuart is the author of the award-winning MathStart series, 63 children’s books that present mathematical concepts in the context of stories for Pre-K through Grade 4. He is also the author of Stuart J. Murphy’s I SEE I LEARN, a 16-book series of storybooks for children in Pre-K through Grade 1 that focus on social, emotional, health and safety, and cognitive skills. Additionally, Stuart is on the authorship teams of a number of educational programs and an advocate of helping our children develop their visual learning skills to become more successful students.

🧪Key Learning Outcomes From Stuart

  • Early Childhood educators can effectively use storybooks and visual models to assure that young students learn the social and emotional skills they need to be successful in mathematics. 
  • For children to be successful in mathematics, teachers must infuse “can do” and “can’t wait to do” attitudes into their everyday math practices. 
  • Display materials that help explain ideas. 
  • Have children search for real-life examples and report their findings. 
  • Work with children to create stories that include mathematical ideas. 
  • Encourage children to sketch as part of their math note-taking process. 
  • Maintain a math literature library!
