Early Head Start

Pregnant mommy with little boy on her handsProgram enrolls pregnant moms and children who are birth to three in a variety of program options:
EHS has a limited number of child care slots available for parents who are working
2 little babies playing or attending MHCC.  Home-based program involves weekly home visits to families, socialization days, and a variety of parent groups.


We will provide the opportunity for group socializations at least 2 times a month for each family.  Group socializations are a time that parents and their children can come together and focus on interacting with each other while participating in age appropriate activities.   We welcome both mothers and fathers to participate in these groups and want you to use this time to further develop your relationship with your child(ren).  Nutritious snacks will be provided during all socialization groups.



Expectant Families Early Head Start Parents


Expectant families are served through the home based program, which includes weekly home visits, as well as monthly socializations and infant massage groups.  Home Visits offer families the opportunity to receive prenatal education, activities to encourage bonding with the baby, and ongoing support from a nurse to learn about the family’s unique concerns. Once the baby is born, a newborn visit by our community health nurse will be completed within 2 weeks of the birth of the baby to ensure the well-being of both the mother and child.
