Eco-Healthy Child Care
Red River Early Learning Centre is the first Eco-Healthy Child Care® Endorsed program in the Waterloo Region. This endorsement is just another step we have taken to ensure that we provide the highest quality of care to our students.
“Eco-Healthy Child Care® (EHCC) is a national program that partners with child care professionals to eliminate or reduce environmental health hazards found within or around child care facilities. Forty-two percent of young children spend at least 35 hours a week in some form of child care. Therefore, creating an environmentally healthy early learning environment is key to the health of our nation’s children.”
I cannot say enough good things about RRELC. In short, it is a wonderfully nurturing, stimulating and inclusive space for young children. My family was lucky enough to work with her this year while I attended school fulltime. From the very beginning, Natasha opened her door and her heart to our child. She worked tirelessly with us to provide our daughter with a consistent, encouraging and loving environment. I never once questioned her judgement or ability to care for my child, and I will forever be grateful for the impact she has had in my kiddos life. It has been an absolute privilege to watch my daughter blossom into her own using the tools and experience she has gained attending RRELC. Thank you.
