Clean Living

Clean, Green, and Toxin-free!

Think of all of the hours a child spends at school and the fact that children are far more vulnerable to environmental toxins than adults. We make decisions at school based on current guidelines for avoiding and reducing exposure to environmental toxins and we aim to help parents do the same at home.  Here, we have provided resources and related articles for your reference.

“I couldn’t have asked for a better start to my son’s education. The loving guides at Athena taught him so much more than reading and writing– he’s learned how to take care of himself and those around him while navigating the social community of his classroom. I feel these life skills will serve him well as he graduates and enters first grade in the fall!”
