Children's Health Services

Your child’s health is important to his/her educational growth. Being healthy and happy makes learning easier.

Safe and healthy families are a community responsibility. Partnerships in the medical and dental field mean you and your child can receive help. A resource and referral system ensures that community connections are made for you and your child.

Health Screenings

All children receive screenings for hearing, vision, dental and nutrition while in Head Start.  Any concern about the medical, dental or development of a child is shared with Head Start Consultants who work with families to secure appropriate services to ensure each child is receiving  necessary treatment.
