EHS believes the first few years are learning years for both you and your baby.  We will work to guide your family in a healthy and well-informed direction.  

You, as a parent, are the child’s first and most important teacher!  Early Head Start supports the physical, social, emotional, mental, and language development of each child. In order to do this, parenting education and the support of a positive parent-child relationship are critical goals of the EHS program.
