Early Head Start Home-Based Program

We provide home visits for pregnant mothers and children between the ages of 0-3 years. An early childhood instructor conducts a home visit for 90-minutes once a week.

This program also provides playgroups that meet twice monthly. The playgroups support children's cognitive, social, emotional and physical growth, as well as the parent's role as their child's first teacher. They help prepare children for center-based care in the Head Start pre-school transition.
