Arthur® Presents: Hooray For Health!


The NPA was proud to be participate in Hooray For Health! at the Boston Children's Museum on Monday September 30th, 2002.  Hooray For Health! is a health curriculum guide from WGBH and PBS television designed for teachers, after-school providers, and school nurses.  Arthur characters introduce units exploring four distinct early childhood health themes:

  • Good nutrition and exercise (Eat Well. Stay Fit.)
  • Dental health (Open Wide!)
  • Emotions (Dealing with Feelings)
  • and Head Lice (Head Lice Advice)

The NPA joined Patty Battle-Mutter, RN, MPH from Cambridge, MA in presenting educational information and resources, including Jesse's Project, to the 65 school nurses in attendance.

Many experts agree that high-quality television, such as Arthur, can inspire active learning.
