Health Services

East Coast Migrant Head Start Project is committed to providing children, families, and staff a safe and healthy environment.

To promote healthy development, children enrolled in our program visit their medical provider on a schedule of preventive and primary health care to ensure that growth is as expected, and any problem is identified early. This early identification can reduce complications, improve health outcomes, and ensure each child attending our program is ready to learn and succeed.

Health services include assistance in:

  • Obtaining medical and dental services

  • Linking families to continuous, accessible care

  • Child development assessments according to age

  • Vision screenings

  • Hearing screenings

  • Anemia screenings

  • Nutritious meals

  • Health Literacy
