Brookhaven College and Dallas Filipino Lions Club at ChildCareGroup

September 11, 2013

Lions Club and Brookhaven at Landauer 2013

Children in ChildCareGroup’s early care and education programs are getting a healthy start, with the help of volunteers from Brookhaven College and and Dallas Filipino Lions Club!

At the beginning of each school year, ChildCareGroup provides health screenings to all of the 3-5 year old children who attend our Center Programs. We screen heights, weights, blood pressure, hemoglobin, hearing and vision.

For the second year, we are excited to partner with the Brookhaven College Nursing Program, who not only assisted with the screenings but also provided entertaining educational presentations to the children.

This year, for the first time, we are excited to partner with Dallas Filipino Lions Club Foundation, who provided the free vision screenings for our children using a new breakthrough vision screening device called ‘SPOT’ by Pediavision. SPOT can assess a child’s vision with unmatched speed, accuracy and deliver immediate comprehensive results.
