Friday, November 20, from 8:30am-4:30pm

Ch.I.L.D. Day Provided by Heartland Community School


The Heartland Community School is setting aside a special time for parents of children age 5 and below to participate in Ch.I.L.D. Day, which stands for Childhood Information on Language and Development.  Just as parents take their young children to the doctor for medical check-ups, the school can provide to parents the services of   a “developmental wellness visit”.  The early childhood personnel at the school can provide current and useful information to parents concerning the early development of their baby, toddler, or preschooler.   


Ch.I.L.D. Day is a childfind effort conducted by the Heartland Community School District.  School districts are required to conduct childfind activities to ensure that young children who need early intervention services are identified.  Involvement in Ch.I.L.D. Day is a free, completely voluntary service and is conducted in a confidential manner. 


Ch.I.L.D. Day is set for Friday, Nov. 20 from 8:30am-4:30p.m.  For babies and toddlers under age 3, we will be meeting in family homes so that the children will feel more comfortable in their natural environment.  For children ages 3-5, we will be meeting in the Heartland Preschool room at the school.


Interested parents who live in the Heartland School District can call the school office in Henderson to register for a time slot when the early intervention specialists can meet with their child.  Parents will be able to ask questions about their child’s development, complete a developmental checklist, and have their child play and interact informally with adults knowledgeable about young children.  Further information may need to be gathered at a later time if the parents and school staff see any concerns.  Parental permission is required for any further evaluation.  


The Heartland Community School wishes to extend this invitation as one way of providing support and information to parents of young children in our district.  Again, parents of young children in the Heartland school district are invited to call the school at 402-723-4434 to register for Ch.I.L.D. Day.
