Early Head Start (EHS)

Early Head Start is a federally-funded community-based program for low-income families with pregnant women, infants and toddlers up to age 3.  In addition to providing or linking families with needed services--medical, mental health, nutrition and education--Early Head Start can provide a place for children to experience consistent, nurturing relationships and stable, ongoing routines.

EHS programs support the physical, social, emotional, cognitive and language development of each child.  This also includes educating and supporting parents and positive parent-child relationships.  Programs provide or provide referrals for:

  • Developmentally appropriate education services for young children
  • Home visits
  • Parent education and parent-child activities
  • Complete health and mental health services
  • High quality child care services provided by or in partnership with community child care centers

Children's Village offers Early Head Start programs at each of its locations.  Please contact us for more information.
