Think Outside! For CEH Day 2021 – Children's Environmental Health Network

Children enjoy greater health and well-being when they have access to natural areas, such as nearby parks, gardens, greenways, naturalized schoolyards and playgrounds, and natural landscaping around homes, schools, and gathering places. Access to natural spaces and outdoor activity can reduce stress, anxiety, and depression, improve symptoms of asthma and attention disorders, and prevent life-long health issues.
Unfortunately, access to nature isn't equal for all kids. Children from communities of color, immigrant communities, and lower-income communities are less likely to have access to safe green spaces in their neighborhoods, and are less likely to feel comfortable exploring natural areas they can access, due to the current lack of diversity in many outdoor activities and racist policies that encouraged this segregation.
This year on Tuesday, October 12 we’re asking you to “Think Outside!” and celebrate CEH Day 2021 with us. Folks all across the US are planning a day of nature-oriented activities to raise the visibility of the need for increased, equitable access to safe green spaces for children and honor the important role nature plays in children’s health. To join, sign the pledge to Think Outside for Childrens’ Environmental Health Day 2021 and take some time to engage with nature in your own way: https://bit.ly/ThinkOutsideCEHDay21

Ms. Tammy sent her classroom a "miss you" video back in March of 2020. Throughout her years with us, she loved the children in her classroom like they were her own. She will be greatly missed and will always hold a place in our hearts.

Today, we say goodbye to a friend and colleague...

We have lost our friend, Tammy Schmidt, to COVID after a two week battle.

Tammy served children and families of our community by working at HWCEC over the course of 30 years. She served as a Lead Teacher and Enrollment Coordinator. As a teacher, she was incredibly caring and nurturing to “her” children. I remember a time in which a family was struggling in Tammy’s classroom. On her break she purchased children's clothing and groceries to relieve some of the pressure. This is just one example of the kind and gentle spirit she had for others.

We will miss her infectious smile, her kind heart, and her love for all! We lift up her husband Chad, and her four children, Donnie, Darin, Kambree, and Kynzlee. May God place His hand on their hearts and provide peace as they mourn the loss of their mom.

17 Beech Street has changed things up in their classroom and are drawing under the tables! Children often get used to sitting at the table or standing to create through writing, coloring, or drawing. Allowing children to lay under the table while coloring enables them to use different muscles and movements.

Plus, how much fun does this look!?

When Andrew Heath with Downtown Bentonville Inc. called and asked if we would show support for our First Responders, we were thrilled and jumped at the opportunity to teach our children about those who keep our town safe. The children worked hard and expressed themselves through their artwork to show their appreciation and support! Thank you, first responders!

17 Beech Street is studying the process of planting a tiny seed and watching it grow. The children are responsible for checking their seeds each day, watering them, and ensuring they get enough sunlight.

Projects like this one give children ownership and responsibility. It also allows children to make hypotheses and determine their findings!

In Creative Curriculum, a Nationally Accredited curriculum for young children, the monthly theme of "Boxes" is always a hit!

Who remembers jumping into a big box and it magically turns into a space ship to the moon? Or sitting in a smaller box and you're transformed onto the sea in a sail boat?

Boxes are timeless and offer a large sense of imagination in young children. The friends in 17 Beech Street are using boxes while they practice graphing and exploring the different shapes and sizes boxes come in as well as practicing all the different ways their bodies can move in and out of the larger boxes.

HWCEC Pre-K Graduation looks a little different this year...children were recorded conducting their graduation ceremony and parents will receive copies of the recording.

We could not be more proud of these children who have learned social and emotional skills, following directions, keeping up with homework, sight words, and more!

Congratulations to the 2021 HWCEC Pre-K Graduating Class! While we'll miss you dearly, we are so excited for your new adventures awaiting you in Kindergarten!

Bad news: L.A. Baby is misleading parents by claiming their products are "organic," "natural" and all materials are "non-toxic." They tout certifications and mix with graphics of their own design to appear more "eco-friendly." When companies overstate or misrepresent their products or business practices to seem environmentally sound, they are "greenwashing."

That's why NOT ONLY are we peeling back the green facade with a new #GettingReadyForBaby report on the greenwashing of crib mattresses, we're lodging a complaint against L.A. Baby with the Federal Trade Commission, who has the power to curb greenwashing. Read the report now at bit.ly/PeelGreen.

HWCEC teachers focus heavily on respect in the classroom. 21 White Pine Way shows a great example.

Children worked hard and diligently creating this block structure. They used props such as dolls, cars, even strategically placed tissues. They problem solved when blocks wouldn't fit just right and used engineering skills to create ramps. They used social and emotional skills when working together.

They created this masterpiece right before going outside. While children are asked to clean up their centers before moving on, these teachers respected the children's time, work, and creativity by keeping the structure up and taking photographs to share with their parents.

Most new babies sleep as much as 16 hours per day! Parents need to know if the products they're buying are actually safe. That's not so easy - many companies engage in "greenwashing:" they overstate or misrepresent a product or their company's environmental or health qualities.

That's why #GettingReadyForBaby is peeling back the green facade with a new report on the greenwashing of crib mattresses. Read it now at bit.ly/PeelGreen.
