The Caldwell County Health Department will be hosting the 2019 Child Health and Safety Fair, located outside of the Health and Human Services Building (2345 Morganton BLVD SW, Lenoir 28645). The event will be held on April 16th, 2019 from 4:00 pm until 6:30 pm.
The Child Health and Safety Fair is held annually during the “Week of the Young Child”. This is an annual celebration hosted by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) celebrating early learning, young children, their teachers, and families. This event also serves as a community Safe Kids Day to recognize the importance of keeping children safe and promote ways to prevent childhood injuries.
During this event children and parents will discuss safety with Caldwell County Safe Kids and first responders including law enforcement, firefighters, etc. Parents will learn health topics from a variety of agencies including The Caldwell County Health Department (Dental, Child Health, Maternity, WIC, etc). Many partnering agencies will be joining the event, such as Robins Nest, the Autism Society, the Forestry Service, and many other agencies. All those involved will have educational material and games for young children. This event is geared for parents and children, birth to 5 years old. The event is free for everyone!
