February Agency-Healthy Start

Healthy Start is a statewide initiative placing comprehensive support services for children and families at individual school sites. It gives schools, in partnership with public and private service providers, a unique opportunity to restructure systems to better meet the needs of children and families.

Healthy Start offers a wide variety of services that focus on supporting academic success and building personal strengths for children, youth and families. We assist students so they can come to school ready to learn. 


The Nurturing Families Program is a program administered by Healthy Start through the Lake County Office of Education that offers classes to parents and their children to help them learn new ways to work together as a family. Nurturing Families is based on the philosophy that parenting is learned - the way parents were raised directly influences the way they raise their children.
