Early Head Start

Early Head Start is a free program for children birth to 2.5 years old and for expectant mothers. Services are provided in both center-based and home-based options. Its focus is to help families and their young children to grow up happy and healthy with prenatal education, nutrition counseling, development & health education, parenting education, and more.

The program, like its counterpart Head Start which is open to children ages 3-4 years old, focuses on school readiness using the HighScope curriculum and the Child Observation Record to measure developmental outcomes across a number of areas. Eligibility is based on income and possible risk factors.
