Children’s developing bodies and organ systems and unique behaviors make them more vulnerable than adults to environmental hazards. Even relatively small exposures to toxic chemicals, such as those that are commonly encountered in many child care settings, may cause health issues. How can entities that are dedicated to the protection of children in early learning settings build their capacity to better protect children’s health and development?
Presenters on this webinar will discuss the lessons learned by their organization in the process of adopting policies or best practices to protect children’s environmental health. New resources on children’s environmental health for child care professionals will also be shared.
