Health & Nutrition

Prenatal: Early Explorers offers health and nutrition services and information to pregnant and expectant families. A home visitor meets with the family a minimum of one time each month. We provide information, resources, and support related to pregnancy and planning for the new baby. Early Explorers also works with parents to decide which services best meets the needs of the new child.

Health Screenings: All children enrolled in Early Explorers Head Start programs must have a physical and dental exam within 90 days of enrollment. A hearing a vision screening will also be performed within 45 days of the program year by our nursing staff. Nurses monitor all screenings to ensure that each child using our services is up to date and that there are no health concerns.
