Calling all parents and caregivers with infants, toddlers, preschoolers, or elementary schoolers! Best Starts for Kids Health Survey now open

Help us make sure all voices are represented in the Best Starts for Kids Health Survey!  Best Starts for Kids is now in its fourth year and things are changing in our communities.  The Best Starts for Kids Health Survey questions are designed to help Best Starts for Kids better understand those changes. Parenting is hard work, and it is our hope that learning about your experiences as a parent, child’s health, family strengths, and community supports will help Best Starts for Kids build on strengths and meet needs for families across King County.
