June 4, 8 and 9th – Developmental Check-Ups – See poster. Vulcan June 4, Milo June 8 and Champion June 9.  Call your local school to register

Important Information for parents of children turning 3 and up to 5 years old – What is a Developmental Check-up? Can your child hop on one foot? How does he hold a crayon? Can other people understand her when she speaks? Just like checking your baby’s height and weight, or getting regular eye and dental check-ups, it is important to check up on their development physically, socially and in language and communication.  The first 5 years of life are very important because this time builds the foundation in the brain for success in school and later adulthood.  This is the optimal time for your child to learn through play and experiences. It is important to help along each child’s development during this period.

Parents that register for the Developmental Check-Up will complete a simple screening tool while doing fun actvities with their child.  Referrals can be made if needed.  Find out about resources for children under 6 in Vulcan County. Ask questions about the preschool program in your area. Go home with a goodie bag of tools to help growing minds and bodies.
