Free health fair in Biloxi helps prepare toddlers for school

There's a wonderful opportunity for parents in Biloxi this weekend to help their children grow up happy, healthy and ready to learn. Biloxi Excel by 5 is hosting a free health and safety fair at Edgewater Mall on Saturday, August 22.

It's specifically designed for children birth to age five, and it offers a wide variety of very important activities and health screenings -things like hearing, vision, and language screenings, which are all important to check to make sure your child is ready for kindergarten. Healthcare professionals will also be checking your child's physical growth. There will be fun obstacle courses and interactive exhibits. Families will also be able to put together their own first aid kits for the home.

Excel by 5's "Ready, Set, Go!" children's health and safety fair is Saturday, from 9 am to Noon at Edgewater Mall in Biloxi. If you need more information, just call Susan Hunt at 228-297-6808.
