Funded by the Federal Government, Head Start (HS) and Early Head Start (EHS) are comprehensive child development programs serving children from birth to age five and their families. The programs are child-focused and have the overall goal of increasing the school readiness of young children in low-income families.
Both programs provide a range of individualized services in the areas of education, medical, dental and mental health, nutrition and social services to children and their families. Parent involvement is encouraged and support is offered for children with disabilities. Ten percent of the programs’ total enrollment opportunities are made available to children with disabilities of all types, without regard to family income.
Since HSs inception in the North Hudson region in 1978 and EHS arrival to the area in 1999, the Program has had a long tradition of delivering high quality center and home-based services to children, their families, and pregnant women. The Program is funded to serve 521 – 96 EHS (03 years); 397 HS (35 years); and 28 pregnant women.
In addition to the comprehensive developmental services for the children, support services and programs – such as the Fatherhood Initiative, English as a Second Language, Basic Computer Skills, Literacy classes, and the 21st Century Parenting Skills workshops – are designed to address employment and self-sufficiency goals for parents and support them in their child-caring roles.
