Prevention and wellness are important in the lives of families.
The Well is Church Health’s prevention and wellness center for children ages 6 weeks old to 12 years old and their families. Our dynamic researched-based and ministry-minded program focuses on the root causes that affect the health and wellness of children and families: physical activity, nutrition, body image, self-esteem, safety education and violence prevention. Through our cornerstone program, Plan to Get Healthy, we emphasize whole-child health and teach about the connection to body, mind and spirit.
Our staff are professional educators who have passed background checks, hold college degrees in fields related to Education, Child Development, and Health. They are CPR and First Aid Certified, have trained in Abuse Prevention through the Child Advocacy Center, are engaged in ongoing professional development, and are committed to compassionate care as we serve children and families. Bilingual staff available.
Plan to Get Healthy
Plan to Get Healthy, the cornerstone of our program, is a health coaching program for children where they set goals to eat better or get moving. A specific plan is created for them in order to motivate them regarding health behavior change.
Arts and Movement
Creativity and the arts are central to the work that we do with children. We also operate the Intergenerational Art Studio connected to our space on the 1st floor, and the Creative Movement Studio on the 2nd floor.
Church Health YMCA
We are excited about our collaboration with the YMCA of Memphis and the Mid-South as we seek to expand our impact on Memphis and its families. Children who are members of the YMCA can attend our program for a two-hour time limit.
