These Child Health Fairs are held up to 7 times a year. The location rotates and is held in different communities throughout the Waterloo Region. Kitchener Public Library attends the fairs held within the City of Kitchener.
This free event is aimed at parents, relatives and caregivers of children from birth to 6 years of age. Visitors can look at information displays for various community services related to children's health. Parents and caregivers also have access to health professionals who can screen children's learning, social, emotional, language, and physical development.
If you would like to have your child professionally screened, appointments are recommended (call 519-571-1626 to register). However, walk-in requests will be accomodated as scheduling permits. Appointments are not required if you only wish to view the displays.
For more details, see the Child Health Fair information page on the Region of Waterloo Public Health's website.
