SCC Parent-Child Center endorsed as eco-healthy child care facility

Saturday, August 21, 2010

The Parent-Child Center at Shoreline Community College has been endorsed as an Eco-Healthy Child Care Center by the Oregon Environmental Council. This endorsement verifies the college's commitment to provide a healthy, safe and green child care setting for children, families and staff.

The Eco-Healthy project was a collaboration between the Shoreline Community College Parent-Child Center and the college’s Center for Service-Learning. A team of five students helped to lead the center through the process of becoming an endorsed facility. The process was based on complying with a checklist of eco-healthy best practices.

Eco-Healthy Child Care is a national program of the Children's Environmental Network created by the Oregon Environmental Council. Their website has great tips for "healthier children and a happier earth."
