YWCA Early Head Start is the beginning of a child's journey to learn. We give kids (aged 0 to 3) a place to grow and create, while providing parents with the free time and guidance to build happy, healthy homes.
Beyond free full-day child care, the comprehensive part of EHS - our wrap-around services - include:
-parental education and support (including home visits)
-take-home family activities
-mental health and disability screenings
-healthcare, social service, and education referrals
Through this vast array of services, our goal is to enhance children's development during their critically young ages while simultaneously promoting healthy prenatal outcomes and supportive family structures.
