Our Early Head Start serves pregnant women, infants, and toddlers.  Early Head Start programs are available to the family until the child turns 3 years old and is ready to transistion into Head Start or another pre-K program.  Early Head Start helps families care for their infants and toddlers through early, continuous, intensive, and comprehensive services.  Like our Head Start program, Early Head Start begins to support mental, social, and emotional development of enrolled children.  In addition to education services, we provide children and their families with health, nutrition, social, and other services.  Early Head Start services are responsive to each child and family's ethnic, cultural, and liguistic heritage.
