Health (medical and dental), nutrition, and child safety areas are an integral part of the larger system of services provided by the JCCEO Head Start/Early Head Start program. They play an important part in supporting the goals of the program.
Health is the foundation of school readiness. To help children thrive, the JCCEO Head Start/Early Head program ensures that children are up to date on immunizations and the state’s Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnosis, and Treatment (EPSDT) schedule, learn healthy habits and can access the care they need. Nutrition is a very important part of the physical and social development of children. Providing healthy food and teaching children healthy eating habits at a young age prepares them to make positive choices that lead to a healthy lifestyle. The nutritional portion of the Head Start program is funded by USDA Food and Consumer Services Child Nutrition Programs.
