Choosing Safe Places for Child Care Facilities

Register Online

Despite adhering to current state licensing regulations, many child care facilities may be located in an area prime for harmful environmental exposures- such as: next door to or within close proximity to a gas station, dry cleaner or nail salon.

Most states do not require a site-specific environmental assessment for child care facilities thus providers could be unknowingly locating their programs in contaminated places.

Join the webinar to learn what is being done by the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry and its state health department allies to ensure that child care facilities are located in safe places. Hester Paul, National Director of the Eco-Healthy Child Care® program will discuss why the location of child care facilities is important to children's health and provide examples of successful state safe siting programs. Jim Murphy, Executive Director of the National Association for Regulatory Administration (NARA) will talk about how NARA champions protecting children's environmental health within child care settings.

Presented by:
Hester Paul, M.S., National Director, Children’s Environmental Health Network’s Eco-Healthy Child Care® 
Jim Murphy, Executive Director, NARA

** This webinar is FREE to attend
