5 Star ERP
5 Star Environmental Recognition Program
Parents and child care providers in Indiana can now have peace of mind that Hoosier children can attend an environmentally healthy child care; one that promotes healthy development in young children free from pesticides, harmful chemicals, lead paint hazards, radon, and other often invisible environmental health threats.
The 5-Star Environmental Recognition Program for Child Care Facilities ensures child care providers have taken steps to reduce and eliminate hazards that can cause permanent, long term developmental problems in young children.
In August 2009 and again in May 2012, Cummins Child Development Center was awarded by the Indiana Department of Environmental Management, 5 Stars for the Indiana Five Star Environmental Recognition Program.
As part of this program the center creates a monthly flyer for parents and community members to gain information about enviromental risks and hazards.
