Home Based and Pregnant Women

The Early Head Start Home Based Program helps families provide quality early childhood education to their children through interactive child development activities including:

Weekly Home Visits: Home visitors provide educational experiences with children and parents in the home, 90 minutes per week. Early Head Start supports parents in their roles as their child’s first and most important teacher.

Family Events: Parents and children attend these events twice a month. Family Events are a time when parents and children participate in age appropriate child development activities that help children to develop new skills.
Comprehensive Services: Early Head Start provides support to parents and children in the areas of Education, Health, Nutrition, Mental Health, Disabilities and Social Services.
