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 Learning Outcomes From Robin and Erin!

  • When supporting children’s social-emotional learning, you help them become more self-aware, learn decision-making techniques, build relationship skills, manage emotions, and help them become more socially aware. 
  • You can use the R.U.L.E.R acronym to help support children’s social-emotional learning – Recognize, Understand, Label, Express, and Regulate. 
  • Programs that are effective in encouraging children to view their emotions as valid lead to children who have stronger skills in the future. 
  • Research has shown that children play more creatively when they have fewer toys around. 
  • Observe children and understand their area of development. 
  • Independent play can be scaffolded by educators.
  • Conversations with educators during play are powerful drivers for learning.
  • There is a huge gap in how much “number talk” toddlers hear.
