We recognize that it can be difficult to find pediatric dentists for very young children. Nevertheless, dental care is very important for our students so we ensure every child has at least one dental check per year. With the permission of the parents, a dentist volunteers to come to each of our classrooms to do a dental screening. We then report any findings to parents and assist with any necessary follow- up appointments. If a family simply needs a dental home, we can provide them with a current list of pediatric dentists in our community and, if they need, we will help them with their initial appointments.
Height and Weight Screenings
We assess each child’s height and weight to measure size and follow growth patterns. If parents have any concerns, we ensure they are referred to service best suited for their needs.
We serve every student in our program well-balanced, nutritious meals while they are in our care. All children are served breakfast and lunch. Many of our students also will enjoy an afternoon snack. Not only will our students eat healthfully during the day, they will also learn about healthy foods and practice healthy options as part of the Color Me Healthy curriculum used in our classrooms. Our students benefit from classroom food activities that spark curiosity, learning, and healthy eating habits.
Immunizations and Physicals
We realize that it can be difficult to keep up with the recommended immunization and physical schedule. Our team of nurses will help parents keep their children up to date and are here to answer any questions they may have. We maintain a current list of pediatricians and can help parents find the best medical home for their children.
