Training Material for Childcare Professionals
Have you ever considered that your child care home or center could be making children sick? Explore the connections between children’s health and indoor environments of child care facilities. Learn safer practices that you can use to help assure that the indoor environment where you care for children is safe.
Ten educational modules on IPM for childcare organized by audience (directors, maintenance staff, teachers and caregivers) and/or pest (mice/rats, roaches, bed bugs, flies, ants and head lice). Developed by Cornell and Penn State Universities' IPM Programs with funding from US EPA.
Penn State’s Better Kid Care and Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Programs teamed up to bring you “Go Green for Kids,” a monthly tip to provide a healthier and safer environment for the children in your care. The articles first appeared in the monthly Better Kid Care e-newsletter and are now available as a PDF or in a WORD document format so you can modify and use them in your childcare setting.
