WRAPAROUND PHYSICAL AND MENTAL HEALTH
Medical and Dental | Establishing medical and dental homes is a priority for HSOLC. On site, dental prevention service is provided for all Head Start children. Children also receive hearing, vision and nutrition screenings with appropriate referrals and resources offered to families when needed.
Nutrition | Meal time is an extension of learning by modeling language, conversation, social interaction and introducing new foods. The menu integrates the latest nutritional research so families are offered the healthiest meals possible. HSOLC works with all families to ensure that their cultural needs are valued and special diets are accommodated for.
Mental Health | A mental health professional is available to every Head Start program to provide mental health services for children and families. Ongoing training and support ensures that HSOLC provides high-quality classroom environments that foster success, safety and wellness for each child.
