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.”
Unparalleled, fantastic care! My son never had a day where he didn’t say to go. He always looked forward to attending, and often wanted to stay and play. Natasha helped him overcome many challenges and obstacles, including his speech. He came to the centre not being able to talk, and less than 3 months later he was chatting up a storm! It was a sad day for us when he finished his time at RRELC, and headed on to JK. Natasha had a huge impact on his development, and we will never forget that.
