EARLY HEAD START
Early Head Start is a free year-round program serving children aged birth to 3 years, as well as pregnant mothers and their families.
We believe that promoting and nurturing a healthy parent/child relationship leads to a great start in life. Caring and qualified staff provide center-based care and home visits and support parents as they help their young children grow and develop.
Head Start provides healthy meals and snacks, health and dental screenings and the opportunity to enjoy playing and learning in a safe, educational setting. We also meet the special needs of children who experience disabilities and support English language learners.
