Healthy Schools

Healthy children make better learners and better educated children are healthier

A healthy school involves a holistic approach where school administration, teachers, parents, students and community agencies work together to create an environment that will have a positive impact on a child's health and learning.

Toronto Public Health's team of health professionals work to service school communities to create Healthy Schools. We use the Healthy Schools approach which is based on the Ontario Ministry of Education's Foundations for a Healthy School.
