High impact information on Child Care

  • OBJECTIVES: The purposes of this study were to assess and compare exposure to allergens and endotoxin in 4 types of public child-care facilities in Brazil and to investigate whether the presence of children and the performance of cleaning procedures could have an influence on allergen and endotoxin levels [5].
  • Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) has not been studied in child care centers [1].
  • CONCLUSIONS: These results suggest that child care responsibility confers an increased risk of smoking among low-income White women [6].
  • Fluoride levels of home and child-care tap and bottled water sources were determined [7].
  • Only 45 percent of infants received timely immunization for DPT and polio; 93 per cent received some well child care by 18 months of age [8].

Biological context of Child Care

  • Dietary fluoride supplements should be considered a targeted, preventive procedure only for those at elevated caries risk, and before prescribing them, careful consideration should be given to other fluoride sources, including home and child-care water supplies, foods, and beverages [9].

Associations of Child Care with chemical compounds

  • The findings of the present study suggest that even a moderate amount of ethanol in combination with a clinical dose of triazolam or temazepam can cause performance impairment that might diminish an individual's ability to respond adequately to unexpected demands (e.g. smoke alarms or middle-of-the-night child care) [10].
  • Morning-to-afternoon increases in cortisol concentrations for infants and toddlers at child care: age differences and behavioral correlates [11].
  • In the first of two articles Beth Lakhani of the Child Poverty Action Group describes how the new Child Support Agency will operate [12].
  • A group of 57 methadone-maintained mothers and 31 matched drug-free controls were compared on their ability to provide adequate child care, capacity for satisfying interpersonal relationships, and motivation for self-improvement [13].
  • BACKGROUND: The Early Childhood Education Linkage System (ECELS) in Pennsylvania (PA) models ideals of the national Healthy Child Care America (HCCA) Campaign [14].

Gene context of Child Care

  • Provider-reported illness and absence due to illness among children attending child-care homes and centers in San Diego, Calif [15].
  • Facilities for child care on NHS premises are very deficient [16].
  • Understanding the Vietnamese in Britain. Part III: Health beliefs, birth and child care [17].
  • Brown's first-person account describes the difficulties the couple and their company faced along the way, including the struggle for funding and a board that questioned Bright Horizons' business model and basic philosophy of good child care [18].
  • This can be done through parent education at each and every well child visit, lobbying to enforce state law to implement SIDS education campaigns for child care centers and within African-American communities, and continued review of the most current literature in SIDS research to keep ourselves current and well informed [19].
