Choose Safe Places for Planners

Are you interested in using planning interventions to help keep children safe?

Choose Safe Places for Early Care and Education (CSPECE) is a program administered by the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) to ensure early care and education programs are in safe places – so that children are not exposed to dangerous chemicals and other environmental contaminants during their care.

The American Planning Association (APA) developed this Education Module to help planners site Early Care and Education (ECE) programs in places with clean air, water, and soil. This online training will provide an introduction and overview of the Education Module and offer an opportunity to review and provide feedback on the usefulness and utility of this new tool. Your feedback will shape the final version of the materials before they are published and shared with all APA members.
