PRETEND CITY LAUNCHES THE COMMISSION FUNDED “GOOD TO GO FROM HEAD TO TOE” DEVELOPMENTAL SCREENING PROGRAM

Pretend City Children’s Museum launched the Commission funded “Good to Go From Head to Toe” Developmental Screening program this week for community leaders and parents. In July, Pretend City received a $3.5 million Commission grant to implement a 10-year countywide program designed to educate the community, parents and care givers about the importance of regular developmental screenings for children, specifically infants to age five.

The new program includes a “Way to Play” guide that was designed to feature activities in the museum and engage children, help parents learn about their child’s motor, communication, social and thinking skills. In addition to the Commission other partners include the American Academy of Pediatrics, Orange County Division, CHOC Children’s Hospital, the Orange County Department of Education, the Orange County Medical Association, and Family Support Network.
