Connections

Asked September 23, 2017, 2:42 PM EDT

I am doing a report on disinfecting in child care facilities and elementary schools. I am looking for information concerning the connection between a clean learning environment and cognitive/physical child development. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I am not aware of any research on this topic. I am aware of the relationship of certain environmental hazards, such as exposure to lead paint, and its relationship to physical and cognitive development in young children. The following article may be helpful to you -- just as a basis for how the physical environment influences child development.
