Eco-Healthy Childcare

MPS is proud to be qualified as an Eco-Healthy Childcare program. This program started in Oregon, but is now being implemented nationwide as more schools recognize the importance of ensuring that a child’s place of learning be eco-healthy. The designation covers a checklist of 30 items covering pesticide and pest prevention, air quality, household chemicals, lead and mercury exposure, furniture and carpets, non-toxic art supplies, toys and playground equipment, and recycling. Beyond this certification, MPS brings an appreciation for the Earth into the classroom with nature oriented projects, books, materials, and excursions.
