Early Head Start is a free home visitation program for children ages 0-3, and prenatal moms. We work with connecting families to community resources and many more benefits. The main focus is the parent-child relationship. At Early Head Start the expectation is that each parent will
find support in working out a balance between his or her own needs and the child's needs. To do this we share experiences, ideas, and observation times.
Parents sort out what works for them and what doesn't work. Parents can also feel free to share problems because they know it's okay to have problems in the big job of parenting.
