The Early Childhood Education program promotes school readiness and parental engagement by enhancing the cognitive, physical, linguistic, social and emotional development of children through the provision of educational, health, nutritional, social and other services to enrolled children, from the ages 0-5 years old and their families. These services are responsive to each child and family’s ethnic, cultural and linguistic heritage encouraging the role of parents as their child’s first and most important teachers. The program builds relationships with families that support positive parent-child relationships, family well-being and connections to peers and community.
The Early Head Start Child Care Partnership program provides continuous, intensive, and comprehensive early child development and family support services that enhance the physical, social, emotional, and intellectual development of 140 participating infants and toddlers who qualify for services ages birth to 36 months. Our grant focuses on working with parents ages 21 and under and/or are homeless.
