Happy Safe Toys and Gifts Month!
Toys are one of the most common causes of accidental injury and death, so it is important to think about toy safety during this season of giving. CCEI supports Safe Toys and Gifts Month by encouraging child care providers to receive ongoing professional development in order to keep current with new safety standards.
"Parents and seasoned professionals alike often feel they understand and promote the highest level of safety, yet injuries and emergency room visits still occur at alarming rates," said Maria C. Taylor, President and CEO of CCEI.
