The North Branch Reformed Church Preschool is pursuing a certification to become an “Asthma-Friendly School.” This is a relatively new program through the American Lung Association, with only one school nationwide who has attained certification.

We were pleasantly surprised to find that our Preschool is already doing so many of the things required for certification. Our staff is trained in Child CPR and First Aid, our building is a non-smoking facility, our rooms are cleaned professionally when the children are not in attendance, we keep the windows closed when the landscapers are cutting the lawn, and so much more!

Several of our staff have children of their own who have asthma, so we understand first-hand the challenges of preventing, identifying, and treating an asthma attack.

We’d be happy to speak with you about how to keep your child’s asthma under control while they’re at our Preschool.
