Healthy Beginnings

High Desert Education Service District

The High Desert Education Service District partners with Healthy Beginnings to ensure that children enter kindergarten healthy and prepared to learn. Services include health, developmental and behavioral screenings for all children birth to 5 years and are provided by professional volunteers and experts. There is no income or insurance requirement for the services. All families are encouraged to schedule a screening.
