Early Head Start (EHS) is a federally funded community-based program for income-eligible families with infants and toddlers and pregnant women.
- Promote healthy prenatal outcomes for pregnant women
- Enhance the development of very young children
- Promote healthy family functioning
The Early Head Start home based option offers and supports comprehensive services to children and their families through weekly home visits and group socialization experiences. Each home visit focuses on the parent as the child's most important relationship and first teacher. In partnership with the parent, a comprehensive plan is developed to support the growth and development of the child. Child development experiences, which include interactions between parent and child, occur during each home visit and group socialization.
