Eco-Healthy Child Care Course®

The 5‐hour Eco‐Healthy Child Care® Train the Trainer (TtT) curriculum offers information on 11
core content areas: pesticides, poor air quality, household chemicals, lead, mercury, furniture
and carpets, art supplies, plastics, arsenic, radon and recycling. In each content category the TtT
participants are taught how to reduce a child’s exposure to toxics. The TtT prepares individuals
to become an EHCC resource for their localized communities. Thus, child care providers have a
local contact that can provide training and technical assistance and offer direction to helpful
resources pertaining to children’s environmental health.
