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 Ron

  • Why technology? Make sure that when you are thinking of getting more technology for your center or your classroom, that you are thinking through why.
  • Use the 5 whys. When you can simply answer those questions then you have a better understanding of what you’re trying to solve and what you are actually looking for.
  • Remember the problem you are trying to solve? What is the ultimate problem? We all know it’s to positively impact children’s well-being and development.
  • Think of technology as an investment. Think of the next two, it will take time to make a change.
  • Do not focus on technology that has the most features, it doesn’t necessarily mean better. It does mean more complexity, training, and more things to go wrong. Start simple!
  • Do not focus on the cheapest technology. The old saying is true, you get what you pay for.
  • Do not focus on technology that only benefits you, seriously think about each stakeholder. Happy Parents= Happy Educators, Happy Educators = Happy directors.
  • Think big!!
