Early Learning Providers, May 2018
Cavity Free Kids is oral health education for young children and their families. It’s designed for use in Head Start and Early Head Start, childcare, preschool, home visiting, and other programs and for families to use at home.
Cavity Free Kids includes a rich collection of lessons, activities, stories, songs and other resources that actively engage young children in fun-filled, play-based learning and help parents practice good oral health habits at home.
Participants will learn what causes cavities and how they can be prevented. At the end of the course, participants will understand how to use Cavity Free Kids with kids and families. You will also learn how to connect children with local dental care.
The course is offered in two formats:
- Stored online through the State of Washington Department of Early Learning.
- Live Online through Arcora Foundation (with the instructor in a different location than attendees and technology is used to enable real-time interaction).
Cost: This course is FREE in Washington state. If you are located outside of Washington, please contact Matt Gonzalez at 206.729.5520.
