What is health and wellness for Early Childhood

Health and wellness is a fundamental component of a child's development and ongoing learning. Health in early childhood can improve learning and well being through adulthood. Important components include mental health, physical health, behavioral health, reaching developmental milestones, therapies (occupational, physical, speech, etc).

 

In order to have the utmost health, a comprehensive approach that incorporates these important components should be delivered to all children. The Council works to support families having this approach and supports health providers in offering this approach through partnership.
