Foremost Family Health Centers is pleased to announce their partnership with Reach Out & Read®. Reading during the first few years of a child’s life sets the stage for the rest of their life. Spending time together while reading aloud helps to create strong parent-child bonds and promotes healthy brain development. Children that are read to more often have improved language and listening skills, experience stronger emotional connections to their loved ones, and gain a lifelong love of reading.
As a partner in this program, Foremost will be giving books to children during their 6 month to 5 year old well child visits. The clinical staff will also discuss the importance of reading with the parents and their children. While they wait for their appointments, children can explore books in the reading nook.
Important COVID-19 Update: Healthy Cooking Classes and Lactation Classes have been cancelled due to COVID-19. If you are interested in Lactation Consultations, please contact Karen Bell directly to set up a telehealth appointment.
