The Head Start (HS)/Early Head Start (EHS) Home Based Program is a no cost program for low income families that serves children from 6 weeks to five years old. Weekly home visitations are provided to help parents improve their parenting skills and assist them in the use of the home as the child's primary learning environment.
Home visits are conducted once a week, for 1.5 hours. The program also provides opportunities for children to interact with their peers during socialization activities offered at the Head Start site or the community, twice a month as well as strategies to strengthen the parent-child relationship.
