Smoke-Free Site

A smoke-free policy bans smoking of any kind on the property, including but not limited to: cigarettes, cigars, pipes, and electronic cigarettes. The policy should cover the entire property.  A smoke-free policy is a great first step toward gradually shifting to a tobacco-free environment. 

This WellSpot has implemented a smoke-free policy.

Tobacco-Free Site

The foundation for WellSpot designation is centered on tobacco-free environments.  A tobacco-free policy prohibits use of all tobacco products on an organization’s property.  This includes tobacco in all forms, as well as any type of smoking device.

This WellSpot has implemented a tobacco-free policy.

Oral Health Program

Tooth decay is the most common chronic disease among children, with more than 40% of children having cavities by the time they enter kindergarten. Early childhood cavities can cause significant pain and lead to oral infection, visible dental decay, destruction and loss of teeth, and damage to permanent teeth.  Child care centers can play an important role in the reduction of caries by educating children and their parents on the importance of healthy oral hygiene and/or implementing a tooth brushing program. 

This child care center WellSpot meets the Oral Health Implemenation benchmark by following best practice standards for tooth brushing, teacher practices, and education to children and families.
