Confidential Child Care Facility Tobacco Use Survey


In an effort to reduce harmful secondhand smoke exposure to children, the Rural Virginia United Coalition, in partnership with the MP-NN CSB Prevention Services Division, are recognizing childcare facilities that are promoting a 100% smoke-free environment.


The scientific evidence indicates that there is “no risk-free level of exposure to secondhand smoke” as reported in the 2006 surgeon general report on the health consequences of involuntary exposure to tobacco smoke.1


The survey that we are conducting of the 261 child care facilities that are operating in the Middle Peninsula and Northern Neck ten county region can be completed here by clicking this link http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/NLF8XZC.


Once we receive your completed survey, individual child care centers that are 100% smoke-free will be presented with a lawn flag, a certificate, and will be promoted as a 100% smoke free facility through the media and web site listings.


Your participation in this important pro health initiative is greatly appreciated.  If you have any questions you can call us toll free at 1-888-PREV-550.
