We are Proud to be recognized as an ehco-healthy Child Care Center

Eco-Healthy Child Care (EHCC) supports child care providers in creating child care settings that are as environmentally healthy as possible. Now available in more than 1,500 locations across the US, Canada and Australia!

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 facilities qualify as “Eco-Healthy” by completing a checklist that highlights 30 requirements to ensure a safe place for children. Eco-Healthy providers commit to reducing children's exposure to toxics and other environmental health hazards.

Facilities that qualify receive an endorsement certificate and a poster that let parents and others know of their efforts, and demonstrates their commitment to being Eco-Healthy. You can find us on the map at: http://www.oeconline.org/our-work/kidshealth/ehcc/find-an-eco-healthy-child-care.

EHCC received the Children's Environmental Health Excellence Award in 2006 from the EPA for its innovative and effective approach. EHCC also recently received the 2009-2010 Childcare and School IPM Recognition Award from the IPM Institute of North America, Inc.
