Give your child the very best start in life with Early Head Start. Early Head Start is designed to nurture and support your child’s physical, social, emotional & intellectual development, from birth to age three.
Prenatal services are part of our resources. We also provide parenting and nutrition classes so parents can learn valuable skills to support their baby’s growth and development.
Infants as young as six weeks old can enroll in the Early Head Start program. For very young children, every moment is an opportunity for learning. Our Early Head Start staff are specially trained in early childhood development. We read & talk to your infants, and toddlers to build vocabulary, encourage them to explore their world through play, song, touch, sight & sound. We use routine and structure to help them feel safe and build trust. In addition, we provide families with resources to support healthy development and learning at home, family health & nutrition and coordinate services for children with special needs. When your child turns three, they will be prepared to transition to Head Start or another appropriate preschool program to continue their path to learning success.
Early Head Start supports your infant and toddler’s early development through:
Pregnant mothers and children birth to three years of age.
Enrollment is determined on a case by case basis. We look at several factors, not limited to: Income guidelines, Family Need, Disability of the Child, Foster Care, Homelessness, etc.
