Early Head Start Program
High-Quality Early Education
Our goal is to provide an individualized, responsive and inclusive educational approach for children and families that promotes opportunities for the healthy growth, education and development of infants, toddlers and their families. We regularly track and assess each child’s progress across early childhood development domains as well as assess our teachers and their interactions with the children under their care. Staff also participate in on-going training and coaching sessions.
We strive to increase availability, quality and effectiveness of physical, dental, nutritional and mental health services available to our families. By addressing children’s health needs, Early Head Start ensures that children can focus on learning. Each child receives health and developmental screenings and, if necessary, are referred to community health partners or intervention services for follow-up services.
Family Support & Engagement
Our goal is to engage and educate families enabling them to be advocates for their children. We work to ensure families have the resources needed to sustain economic stability. Through frequent communication and home visits, we work with families to create family goals and help connect them with resources and agencies to improve their well-being.
Our goal is to become a resource for infant and toddler expertise both for practitioners looking to learn more about how to develop high-quality programming and for decision-makers seeking to learn more about how to best invest in children and families birth to age three.
