Keeping your child healthy is an important responsibility. Good health involves more than the prevention of disease. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children need to be examined regularly to determine their height, weight and development status.
New Jersey State Law provides that residents of Closter are entitled to well baby pediatric care administered by the New Milford Board of Health. This program is for well children only, newborn through kindergarten age.
