Child Care Health Consultant:
The safety and well being of their children while in daycare is very important to parents. The health department provides health and safety education to day care providers to improve the health status and ensure safety of children in child care facilities. The promotion of health and safety occurs through on-site assessments of the facility, child care staff and disease prevention practices. Health promotion/educational presentations are offered to staff, children and parents. Staff education is rewarded in clock hours for daycare licensure. Call the Health Dept. at (573)883-7411 to register for the classes when they are available.
CPR/ First Aid:
Our nursing staff offers different CPR classes throughout the year through the American Heart Association. Once classes are available they will be posted along with the cost for each class. For questions call the office.
