Holland Center strives to create the best learning environment possible for our clients. This includes minimizing chemicals from the environment that may be harmful to the children.
Our center uses chemical free, non-toxic and plant base cleaning products. Holland Center also uses hydrogen peroxide for cleaning. We hire a professional carpet cleaning company that uses enhanced water that is electrolyzed and oxidized, instead of chemicals, to create a powerful cleaning solution.
There are no pesticides or herbicides used on the grounds. All students, staff, and visitors are requested to remove their shoes or wear center only shoes at Holland.
The paint used throughout the center is NO VOC paint which eliminates exposure to volatile organic compounds. The cove adhesives used are rated green and NO VOC as well.
The floor on the main level is marmoleum. Marmoleum is a non-toxic, anti-bacterial flooring. The upper level is carpet that has been completely outgassed.
Wood or metal is chosen whenever possible for center needs. We strive to lessen any plastic, especially soft plastics. which can be toxic. We strive to be compliant with European Union standards of safety.
Staff are asked to refrain from wearing scented products such as perfume, lotions and shampoos.
The playground contains two “Rainbow Play sets” built with Redwood. The wood is untreated to reduce potential toxins.
