The early years in a child's life prepare them for their future. The first 6 years of your child's life and the experiences that they have play an important role in your child's development. As a caregiver, you know your child best and can observe and identify possible developmental concerns. The earlier concerns are identified the more you can do to help your child develop well. We offer a number of programs and services that can aid in your child's development.


18-month well-baby visit

It is important for your child to be seen by their health care provider at 18-months of age. This visit is an opportunity to discuss your child's development and ask any questions that you may have.
