The Children’s Center at Gracelyn is proud to be endorsed by Eco-Healthy Child Care® (EHCC) through the Children’s Environmental Health Network (CEHN) as an Eco-Healthy center.
CEHN is a national multi-disciplinary organization whose mission is to protect the developing child from environmental health hazards and promote a healthier environment.
EHCC supports child care providers in creating child care settings that are as environmentally healthy as possible. The program allows parents to choose child care facilities that are committed to creating a safer, healthier environment for children to learn and grow. Child care centers and family home programs qualify as “Eco-Healthy” by completing a checklist that highlights 30 simple, free or low-cost steps that help you make safer choices for children. Eco-Healthy providers commit to reducing children’s exposure to environmental health hazards. The Eco-Healthy Child Care® program endorses providers who comply with at least 24 of 30 best practice techniques.
