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 session, we were joined by Stacey Band, Parent Coach and Founder of Home Day Hero. Stacey talked about the starting points for writing, and children using their hands. She went into how tactile experiences help grow a child’s functions of their hands and coordination and how educators can create experiences to help build a foundation for learning.

🎤Our Special Guest!

Stacy Band

Stacey Band holds a Bachelor of Science in Child Development, a Master Degree in Public Administration from a School of Education, and is an AMS certified Montessori Teacher.

In her spare time, she loves spending time with her two young children and her college sweetheart, going on nature walks, and creating cooking and art projects.

🧪Key Learning Outcomes From Stacey

  • There are 3 types of activities that can encourage hand strengthening: Sensory based and art-related activities, any activity that requires hand-eye coordination, and everyday life experiences. 
  • If you want to get your children using their hands then dive into activities like Playdough, sand play, painting, drawing with chalk, and using child-safe scissors. 
  • Sensory-based activities are an awesome option for helping children build independence, and create something of their own. 
  • It’s important to provide hand-eye coordination activities so children can have open-ended play, use both their hands and develop bilateral coordination. 
  • When just starting out, observe the child and see where they are at. Then identify what their strengths are, and build on them. From there pair strength with a challenge and help the child take their skills to the next level.
