Preschool Health Roundup Wednesday

By Jon Zacks

 

Success-By-6 is undertaking a local preschool health roundup tomorrow.

The event is for families of three and four year-olds, and will include information on nutrition and safety, as well as child wellness (including dental, hearing, and vision checks), child development, and school readiness.

Organizer Lynn Locher says screening for developmental issues is a vital preventative measure for parents of young children.

Locher says the roundup will give families useful parenting information, and help connect them with the services and resources that are available in the region.

The fun and interactive event runs on Wednesday from 9 a.m. – noon and 3-6 p.m. at the Enerplex.

Families are welcome to just show up, or call 250-785-5701 for more information.

Because of the paving work currently underway, those in attendance are asked to use the back entrance of the Enerplex.
