So many times, our Head Start parents focus on the well-being of their child, and many times neglect their own health and well-being.

So many times, our Head Start parents focus on the well-being of their child, and many times neglect their own health and well-being. As a result, our Head Start Advisory Committee (HSAC) comprised of doctor's nurses, mental health providers, parents, and staff, decided to have a holistic fair, especially for our families. Several of our community partners came out and provided free dental screenings and nutrition information. A personal trainer came and provided parents with information and exercises they can do at home to stay fit. The highlight of the evening was our Zumba class. Parents enjoyed it tremendously. Water, juice, yogurt, and fresh fruit were provided as snacks. Our staff even took part in the Zumba classes. It was a blast!
