On Saturday, June 7th, the ever-popular Pretend City Children’s Museum in Irvine, hosted their 5th annual Family Fun and Wellness Fair.

Dubbed Good To Go From Head To Toe, the fair was an educational initiative aimed at informing the community about healthy child development and the importance of regular developmental checkups. These checkups can provide vital information regarding a child’s growth and development; information that isn’t generally covered in their yearly well-child visits.

As with many areas of healthcare, early intervention is a key component in successfully treating developmental delays. If delays are noticed and supported early on, they can often be corrected sooner and cause less impact on a child’s future learning.  However, this day in age families have varying healthcare coverage, and sometimes even with full coverage expedient referrals to specialists are difficult to come by.

Because of their commitment to child development and education, Pretend City made the following developmental checkups and health screenings available to all fair patrons, free of charge:

  • Hearing
  • Speech and Language
  • Social and Emotional
  • Body Mass Index (BMI)
  • Blood Pressure
  • Dental
  • Fine, Gross and Oral Motor
  • Vision

In addition to the information provided at Good To Go, Pretend City makes the Ages and Stages Questionaire (ASQ), a growth and developmental checkup tool for parents, available in their lobby as well as online.

Just because Good To Go was chock full of helpful and relevant information doesn’t mean that the kids realized it.  In true Pretend City fashion, they made all this potentially mind numbing information fun… even for a two year old!

Kids danced around to live music, ran through bubbles, played games, received stamps on their Passports to Healthy Development, and more.

Pretend City once again provided an educational and fun environment for both kids and parents alike! They’re grooming those future dentists, attorneys and teachers, just the same as us Moms and Dads.
