Healthy Families

Healthy Peninsula envisions a community where all families with young children have the support and opportunities that they need to prepare children entering kindergarten to be socially, emotionally, and physically ready to learn.

Data support the theory that when children have high-quality pre-kindergarten educational and social experiences, they are more likely to leave school ready for post-secondary learning opportunities.

Vanessa Hatch

Healthy Families Coordinator

I’m excited to join Healthy Peninsula as the Healthy Families Coordinator.  I am a fierce advocate for quality child care and our community members who own and run their own child care facilities.  I am well aware of the challenges of working parents on the peninsula. One of my immediate goals in my position is to help parents and guardians find child care options to improve the lives and wellbeing of both the parents and children.
