Early Head Start (EHS) offers a Home Visiting program for pregnant women and children under the age of 3 years.  Families receive bi-weekly or weekly visits in their home with a child development specialist.  The visits focus on helping you build your child's brain through fun child-friendly experiences, providing you with information on the latest research regarding early childhood education.  You also have an opportunity every month to meet other parents who have infants and toddlers, just like you, and build your network of friends!


Home Visitors provide opportunities for you to set developmental goals for your child and even set goals for yourself.  They can show you how to find resources in your community to get things like medical care, clothing, food, employment, education, transportation, housing, and so much more!  They truly enjoy helpling families and want you to feel confident in your role as a parent!


Families in Early Head Start report they feel supported by their Home Visitor and they have seen their child's developmental skills improve greatly.  More than 90% of the children who have been in the Early Head Start Home Visiting program are at or above their age-expected level in all areas of development!  Call one of our centers/sites today and make an appointment to enroll in the program that will make you FEEL GOOD TO BE A PARENT!
