95% of Early Head Start targeted children have a health care provider.

About Early Head Start

Early Head Start programs offer high quality educational services for children from low-income families, in both center-based and home-based program options. At our centers, children age 6 weeks to 36 months receive services in a full-day, full-year child care setting, with a child-centered educational approach to learning. Daily nutritious meals and coordinated services with Early Head Start specialists provide a comprehensive approach to the needs of the child and family. 

In our home-based program, parent educators come to participants’ homes for 90-minute education sessions once a week, with families who are pregnant or parenting a child under the age of 3. Families gather twice a month for play and socialization, and are linked with a variety of resources and services according to their needs. Services in both options are provided without cost to participants.

We currently offer six programs in the following areas:
