Early Head Start

Infant and Toddler Care

Early Head Start provides services for low-income families with infants and toddlers up to age 3 and programs for pregnant women. Recent advances in the field of infant brain development make this program essential for infant and toddler’s optimum progress. Available to qualified low-income families, these services are sensitive to each family’s linguistic, ethnic, and cultural heritage. A strong emphasis is placed on the valuable role of parents as the first and most important teacher of their child. With focus on each child's unique strengths and needs, combined with a safe, caring environment created by skilled teachers, CommUnify’s early education programs prepare children for a lifetime of success in school, and in life.
