NVFS Early Head Start

Early Head Start Centers & Home-Based Programs

NVFS’ Early Head Start programs provide tools and resources to pregnant women and parents of children ages 0-3 at home and at our centers so that they can build a brighter future for their family. NVFS Early Head Start offers home-based and center-based programs in Arlington, Loudoun and Prince William counties.

At our centers, children receive:

  • Full-day, full-year care, with a child-centered approach to learning
  • Daily nutritious meals
  • Coordinated services to provide comprehensive solutions to the child’s health and educational needs

In our home-based program, parent educators come to participants’ homes for weekly 90-minute education sessions. Families gather twice a month for play and socialization, and are linked with a variety of resources and services according to their needs.

NVFS also offers Head Start for children ages 3-5, as well as our Healthy Families home-visiting program for families with children ages pre-birth to 3 or 4 years old depending on jurisdiction.
