A Public Health Nurse (PHN) will visit select OPCC EarlyON drop in programs on a monthly basis. Public Health Nurses work with communities to promote family health, discuss the developmental potential of children and can provide the most up to date information on topics such as nutrition, physical activity, oral health, illness and communicable diseases, child development, social and mental health. Public health nurses are an excellent resource for answering these and many other questions such a picky eaters, toilet learning, separation anxiety and treating common childhood diseases. Bring your questions along and meet the nurse.
Dates for visits to EarlyON programs at OPCC for Fall 2019 are not yet available, but will be posted here once they have been confirmed.
