Good Daycare News

In July of 2023 Governor JB Pritzker and the Illinois Department of Public Health announced the state would be offering more than 20,000 HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) purifiers at no cost to Day Care Centers in Illinois. To qualify, the Lyndon Play -n- Learn Center (LPLC) had to fill out a request form with detailed information about the size of the daycare and how many children were being accommodated within the center. This enrollment process allowed Day Care centers to submit an order for the HEPA air purifiers. Grantees would generally be eligible for one small unit for each classroom.

LPLC applied for this grant and received 4 HEPA purifiers yesterday for the center. We realize that air quality is critically important to the health of the children, especially in close proximity of one another in a daycare setting. The health and well-being of the children is the key to a successful and healthy year. The purifiers will help reduce the transmission of viruses and sicknesses. Studies show that cleaner air can reduce absentee rates, and improve students' abilities to think, learn, read and play with their peers.

We are looking forward to getting these running and for an awesome rest of 2023. Happy Fall!!!
