More About Early Childhood Services

Community Resource Centers
Community Resource Centers (CRC) are co-located at several TGC Head Start sites in the Downriver area. Our CRCs serve families through programming such as: adult-child interaction groups, literacy events, after-school program, computer lab, and a clothing closet. WIC offices are housed at several sites.
Early Childhood Program Registration
Early Childhood Prevention Services help support families with very young children. Home visitors utilize Parents as Teachers, an evidence-based model, to screen and assess children (birth through 3 years), promote optimal social, emotional, physical and cognitive development, build parenting skills, and provide community resources.
