Cathedral Park Preschool is certified as an Eco-Healthy Preschool by the Children’s Environmental Health Network. By upholding environmental safety standards at the preschool, we take an active role in protecting the health and well-being of all the children at the school.
Among other efforts, we use safe, non-toxic cleaning products, natural pest prevention methods (no pesticides!), and non-toxic art supplies; and take steps to avoid children’s exposure to lead and other toxins. We also do our part to reduce, reuse, and recycle, and encourage the use of reusable bottles and towels.
The board and teacher make conscious decisions on purchases with regards to our carbon footprint in addition to the safety and well being of children at the school.
We use cleaning supplies that allow children to help with the process of wiping down tables or windows.
