I know I sound like a broken record, but August was a very busy month for us. ICYMI, here’s a rundown of the goings on at ESNG this month:

The importance of early intervention
make-the-first-five-count
The first step to successful early intervention services is identifying a potential developmental delay or disability. To do this, we must make sure our children’s development is screened early and often. Our Make the First Five Count free, online screening tool makes tracking your baby’s development easy. Since every baby is so different, it doesn’t matter if you’re a first-time parent. Find out more about MtFFC. 

Back to School

Mansell I Love My Teacher
August 5 marked the first day of school for our child development centers in metro Atlanta and Northeast Georgia. Keeping our children healthy as they make new friends includes ensuring their immunizations are up to date. According to the Centers for Disease Control
  • Vaccines are among the safest and most cost-effective ways to prevent disease.
  • When a child comes down with a disease such as whooping cough, chickenpox or the flu, he or she may miss a lot of school while recovering. Somebody will need to stay home to provide care and make trips to the doctor.
  • Schools are a prime venue for transmitting vaccine-preventable diseases, and school-age children can further spread disease to their families and others with whom they come in contact.
