Early Head Start programs seek to build a foundation for a child’s developmental competence and school readiness during the earliest years of childhood. The program promotes healthy prenatal outcomes, enhances the development of infants and toddlers, and supports healthy family functioning. Families may participate in a home visiting program or utilize infant-toddler childcare where available.

Children who are 3 to 5 years old are eligible for Head Start services. Pregnant women and children from birth to 3 years of age are eligible for Early Head Start services.
