Child & Family Development
Early Head Start
Community Action's Early Head Start program was established in 1999 to serve pregnant women, children ages birth to three, and their families. The program recognizes that by providing services at an early age, a child's growth and development can be significantly impacted in a positive way.
Early Head Start promotes healthy prenatal outcomes and seeks to enhance the development of infants and toddlers. Like Head Start, Early Head Start encourages parents and guardians to become more involved in their child's development. Parents also have the opportunity to participate in the operation, governance, and evaluation of local Early Head Start Programs.
Early Head Start services are offered through a center-based option through Educare of Lincoln, and through a home-based program option. Through the provision of weekly visits in the comfort of participants' homes, EHS Home-based ensures that children from low-income families receive adequate nutrition, medical and dental care, social/emotional engagement interventions appropriate to their age, and a developmentally appropriate education.
