On April 19, 2014…following The Week of the Young Child, Healthy Beginnings will be hosting its 1st Annual Early Childhood Resource Fair at St. Charles Medical Center Conference rooms from 9am-1pm. Our title sponsor, Elemental Eyecare, will be there amongst 30 (plus) vendors, preschools, organizations, recreation services, who will display and/or demonstrate information, resources, products and services to educate and inform parents of young children. This event is free to families and parents do not need to register to attend.
During the fair, Healthy Beginnings will be administering our (brand-new) custom preschool health screenings to visiting families called “4 Before 5”. 4 Before 5 simply means that we will screen children 0-5 years of age on four health essentials: Vision, Hearing, Child Development and Behavior.
Healthy Beginnings is excited to bring together all the partners of our community that benefit families with 0-5 year old children to one venue. This fair is simply a one-stop-shop for parents seeking resources for raising healthy active young children.
We are still looking for more vendors and sponsors, but space is limited. If you are a vendor, preschool, organization, recreation service provider, who cater to parents and children of 0-5 year old children, contact Anna Van Gordon at 541-383-6357.
