Child Care Providers
Skagit County's Child & Family Health Team works with individuals, families and the community to promote lifelong health from the earliest possible point, with particular emphasis on pregnant women, infants and toddlers. Our services are offered at no charge to families. Some of our services have specific eligibility requirements, others are available to all Skagit County families.

Pregnant Women

Nurse-Family Partnership | Maternity Support Services
Pregnancy is a critical time for the developing child. Public Health works in partnership with others in our community to assure that pregnant women get early prenatal care and find the information and support they need to have healthy babies. Public Health also works to help prepare new moms and dads for a successful parenting experience.

Infants/Toddlers

Nurse-Family Partnership
The first few years of life lay the foundation for future health and success. Science has demonstrated how a child's health and early experiences are connected to later health, educational success, criminal behavior (or the absence thereof) and overall life course. Public Health works in partnership with others in our community to assure that families and caregivers of infants and toddlers get the information and support and linkage to resources they need to get a healthy start in life.
