Health and Nutrition

The learning process is diminished when a child is hungry or unhealthy. Head Start strongly believes that a child must be healthy in order to learn.

We create healthy children through: 

- daily nutritious meals & snacks
- immunizations/shots
- hearing & vision screenings
- growth measurements
- TB testing
- tests for lead poisoning & anemia
- dental exams
- physical exams
- mental health support & counseling
- health education
- weight management support
- and more!

We partner with medical professionals to ensure each child receives a 'Head Start' to live a healthy life. We support families to meet the needs of any follow-up treatments necessary.
