Health & Safety
Children who are healthy and safe are better prepared to grow and learn to their full potential. Areas of health include mental health, physical health, social and emotional health, oral health and nutrition. Prevention of child abuse and neglect is a cornerstone of child safety. Safety includes injury prevention, child care safety, food safety, and safety from domestic violence as well.
