Competency Statement 1 To Establish and Maintain a Safe, Healthy, Learning Environment I strive to provide an environment that is both a physical and emotional safe haven. Focusing on meeting their basic health needs and allowing for a fun learning experience.

Fortunately, this condition is treatable, and asthma can be controlled. It is important that the community physicians and teachers take charge and develop action plans and educational programs to give the parents the tools to empower their children. By empowering the children to take responsibility for their condition, they will be more successful in school and also be aware of their health needs. Disease management programs, if marketed effectively would save the communities a substantial amount of money in hospital visits every year. Most importantly, the profound effect this could have on the children who live in these communities that would have better lives because of it.
Health.- It is important that a child has a healthy diet,sleep well,play sports,and do other activities that help them in their physical,intellectual and emotional development.
