Many of our nation’s youngest children spend 40+ hours every week in an early learning environment, and may be routinely exposed to a variety of environmental health hazards. The Children’s Environmental Health Network, in partnership with the National Association for the Education of Young Children and state QRISs, are working to reduce children’s exposures to environmental toxicants commonly found within early care and education settings.
