Local professionals will discuss the importance of brushing teeth and other oral-health related topics! If you haven't received an invitation to our virtual event, please contact your Family/Health Advocate or Home Visitor.
Young children need help brushing their teeth. Brush with fluoride toothpaste, both after breakfast and before bed.
As children “graduate” from the Head Start community, they never really leave the hearts of staff. Throughout the years, staff celebrate children’s and families’ successes, and also experience heartache when those children and families face struggles and tragedy. We extend our deepest sympathy to the families, friends and educators of those involved in the recent tragedy and strength to all to get through these toughest of times. #CherawStrong
As we prepare for colder temperatures, we remind families to dress children in warm clothes. Staff’s priority will be to get children onto buses and into buildings as quickly as possible.
Attention families: Just a reminder that children will return on Tuesday. Staff will return Monday. We can’t wait to see your children’s smiling faces on Tuesday!
Thank you to our community members for their kind and generous donations and putting a smile on the faces of these children this holiday season.
