Forbes Preschool is again making it easier for parents to meet the five crucial domains for early childhood development with Child and Family Health nurse appointments available every Tuesday at the preschool.
“We know how crucial the first 2000 days are of a child’s life and tracking health and development milestones is an important part of that – we also know how incredibly busy those first 2000 days are and by having child health appointments available in our beautiful new community space at preschool we hoped it would make it all that little bit more easier and accessible for parents,” Forbes Preschool Director, Amy Shine said.
Last year the NSW Government announced Brighter Beginnings, a portal dedicated to information and services as well as parenting life navigations tools – we are in the ideal position to be able to compliment this service by having it all under one roof here at Forbes Preschool,” Ms Shine said.
“We continue to develop and run specialised programs to address the other four key domains for early childhood development such as social competence, emotional maturity, language and cognitive skills as well as communication skills and general knowledge, so including another speciality just completes our ability to offer whole child support in the safe, fun and trusted preschool space,” she added.
The Child and Family Health appointments are open to all community members, your child does not need to attend preschool.
Every Tuesday (during the school term) from 9am to 3pm parents can drop in with the two Child Health Nurses available. You can book appointments on 6850 7300.
