While looking at Arkansas geographic and statistical information, KIDS FIRST administration realized that in Magnolia, there were no clinic based Services available for children from birth to 3 years old. Considering the area’s Services, there was certainly a need that KIDS FIRST could fill. Searching for a clinic site proved to be challenging but a small building that formerly housed a developmental disabilities program was decided upon, furniture was moved in and staff began preparing their rooms.
Enrollment got underway and the need for KIDS FIRST Services was justified. The clinic prospered in this location until a larger building was renovated near the hospital. After 3 years in this location, the clinic was able to move to a newly constructed facility in 2008. Enrollment has continued to grow steadily over the years.
The new building has 6 treatment rooms, nurse’s station, kitchen, administrative offices and large indoor playroom. KIDS FIRST Magnolia serves special needs children in Columbia County and surrounding areas.
KIDS FIRST Magnolia works in cooperation with local, area and state colleges to provide observation and training to nursing, early childhood and special education students.
