TVCCA Cares About Education Early Head Start

Get year-round, home visitation program serving expectant parents and children from birth to three.


Early Head Start

The Early Head Start program goal/mission is to help prepare young children for school. Our purpose is to foster the healthy family relationships that provide the foundation for children to learn. Early Head Start is not a child care program. Early Head Start is a home visitation program whose services are provided by a parent educator in your home. Each week your Early Head Start Home Visitor will meet with you for 90 minutes during a time that is convenient for both of you. A play group is offered on a regular basis.
