Because children must be healthy to learn and develop, Educare DC offers vital comprehensive health and wellness services to our low income families and children, including:

  • Developmental screenings for our infant, toddlers and Pre-K children
  • Assistance enrolling in Medicaid and WIC
  • Management of chronic conditions including special health and nutrition needs
  • On-site therapeutic services (i.e. physical, speech, and occupational therapy)
  • On-site hearing, vision, and dental screenings
  • Coordination with medical providers for immunizations and well-baby checks, and referrals to specialists when needed.
  • Three healthy meals each day, provided free-of-cost via the Child & Adult Care Food Program

The comprehensive health philosophy is infused through Educare’s childcare program with daily health checks of each child, meals each day designed in consultation with a nutrition specialist, and a school garden as a source of food and learning for children and families.
