The Early Head Start program offers comprehensive services to income eligible pregnant woman, infants, and toddlers up to three years old in Wright County and Western Hennepin County.
Families receive weekly 90-minute home visits to support and strengthen parent-child relationships and develop school readiness skills. Home visitors also target health, dental, social-emotional and nutrition services; prenatal support for expectant mothers; and referrals to other community resources as needed. Early Head Start uses Partners for a Healthy Baby Curriculum along with resources from Creative Curriculum for Infants, Toddlers and Twos to support the most important years of brain development, and we use the Desired Results Development Profile (DRDP) to document and observe every child’s progress.
Early Head Start encourages the role of the parent as their child’s first and most important teachers, providing strategies that help parents prepare children for school and promote their academic success. Early Head Start also recognizes the need for social development outside of the home. Socializations are offered twice a month to allow parents and children the opportunity to build relationships with other families in the program. We offer services to all children, including those with any health, developmental, or nutritional needs.
We are constantly looking for volunteers to help us further expand our programs and services to families in Wright County. Interested in volunteering with us?
