Clean Air Daycare: How Little Lukes Preschool is Making Indoor Air Quality a Priority

Education and Air Quality


Clean Air for the Next Generation.



Learn how Little Lukes and Intellipure is making indoor air quality a priority.

Every day babies, children, parents, guardians, teachers, and therapists pass through the doors of Little Lukes. With foot traffic this high it is inevitable to gain concentrations of contaminated air inside the building. Little Lukes has partnered with Intellipure, world-class medical-grade air purifiers, to remove Allergens, Chemicals, Toxins, Germs, Odors, and most importantly, to kill airborne Viruses. With the help of Intellipure, Little Lukes can reduce the spread of illness among the youth in our care.

It is important to us that the children in our centers have the healthiest environment possible while learning, growing and preparing for success in school. The installation of the Super V systems has decreased ultrafine pollution in our centers by greater than 90 percent. By offering Clean Air Daycare for children in our care, we can give children a fresh start in life and healthier futures.

The Environmental Performance Index (EPI) ranks air pollution as the #1 environmental threat to human health. In fact, a comprehensive global review revealed that air pollution may be damaging the entire human body, from every organ to virtually every cell. The research identifies connections between air pollution and common health risks from heart and lung disease to diabetes and dementia to liver problems and bladder cancer. Most importantly, the review found that fertility, fetuses and children are also negatively affected by toxic air. Because indoor air pollutants can be 2-5x higher than outdoor levels, it is suggested to improve the air quality indoors by eliminating the source of pollution, diluting the air when possible, and cleaning air with a high quality air purifier.


Why did Little Lukes choose Intellipure? Every Intellipure System is handcrafted and individually tested to guarantee the highest level of filtration possible. Each unit comes with a certificate after being individually inspected by an IAQ professional. “We understand that a higher percentage of children are negatively affected by asthma and allergies and want to be part of the solution,” said Ed Alberts, administrator of Little Lukes Preschool & Childcare Center.  The American Lung Association states that, “children face special risks from air pollution because their lungs are growing and because they are so active and breathe in a great deal of air.”

The Future of Daycare


Thanks to Intellipure, the Super-V air purifier is installed in every Little Lukes center, including the DeWitt, Baldwinsville, Fulton, Oswego, and Pulaski locations.


By making continuous advancements with the next generation in mind, Little Lukes is changing the meaning of daycare. Today’s children are tomorrow’s leaders. By reducing the percentage of Allergens, Chemicals, Toxins, Germs, Odors, and Viruses, children can spend less time at home with an illness, allergies, or asthma and more time in preschool preparing for their future.


The World Health Organization stated Indoor air pollution is the greatest environmental threat of our time and can be particularly dangerous for our children. The patented Super-V system is guaranteed to rid the environment of greater than 99% of all these dangerous particles, creating a much healthier and more enjoyable space. Little Lukes Preschool and Childcare Center is the first center Nationwide to adopt medical grade air cleaning systems, showing their true commitment to providing the next level of comfort for their staff and children.

Bring The Future Home

Children are especially susceptible to pollutants. According to the former Director General of the World Health Organization, Dr Margaret Chan, “Air pollution is ‘one of the most pernicious threats’ facing global public health today and is on a much bigger scale than HIV or Ebola.” This is because air pollution, “is so pervasive and also because you can’t escape it,” says Chan.


Air purification is not just for little ones who suffer from asthma, allergies, or chronic illness. To invest in a high quality air filtration system, is to invest in your child’s development and education. We are proud to encourage parents and guardians to install medical-grade air purifiers in their homes.
