Early Head Start

Early Head Start (EHS) is a federally funded community-based program for low-income families with infants and toddlers. EHS evolved out of Head Start's long history of

providing services to infants and toddlers and recent advances in the field of infant development.

The mission is simple :

  • to promote healthy prenatal outcomes for pregnant women,
  • to enhance the development of very young children, and
  • to promote healthy family functioning

Programs are responsible for the following:

Child Development: Programs must support the physical, social, emotional, cognitive, and language development of each child.

Parenting education and the support of a positive parent-child relationship are critical to this cornerstone.

Family Development: Programs must seek to empower families by developing goals for themselves and their children.

Staff and parents develop individualized family development plans that focus on the child's developmental needs and the family's social and economic needs.

Families that are involved in other programs requiring a family service plan will receive a  single coordinated plan so that they experience a seamless system of services.
