Car Seat Safety Check Event June 19
The Richland County Health Department and the Parents as Teachers home visiting program, together with the Sidney- Richland County Library, are hosting a car seat safety check in the library’s parking lot. Your child will enjoy 30 minutes of sing-along and story time inside the library at 10:30 AM, followed by outdoor chalk, bubbles, and face painting stations. Experienced car seat technicians will be on site from 10 AM - noon to ensure that your infant’s and children’s car seats are installed in the safest possible way for your child.
This event has been organized as one of RCHD’s Parents as Teachers (PAT) monthly group connections for families with young children. Parents as Teachers is a program that is committed to “helping children grow up healthy, safe, and ready to learn” (www.parentsasteachers.org). The PAT program is a voluntary home visiting program that offers personal visits to enrolled families on a weekly or bi-monthly schedule. These visits center on development-centered parenting, parent- child interaction, and family well-being. PAT also hosts monthly group connections which focus on topics relevant to parenting and early childhood. PAT’s monthly group connections are open to the entire community in Richland County.
