Early Head Start: For children up to 3 years old.
We support the belief that the parent is the child’s first teacher. People’s Early Head Start program provides center-based and home-based education, health, and social services for pregnant women and families with children up to three years of age.
Head Start: For children from 3 to 5 years old.
Our 13 Head Start centers and home-based services promote early childhood education, health, nutrition, social services, parent education, family development, and parental involvement for income-eligible families and children ages three to five. Dedicated teachers provide developmental, sensory, and behavioral screenings during enrollment. We also encourage parents to participate in program governance, volunteer, and attend parenting training, adult literacy, and career skills classes.
Affordable Child Care
Affordable quality daycare for qualifying families is available at the Child Development Center in Clintwood. Supervised, age-appropriate activities designed to promote learning take place in full-day infant-toddler and preschool classrooms, before and after school child care, and full day summer care for school children.
FDC Equivalent Family Development and Strength-based Program
Sponsored by People Incorporated’s Family Development Institute, the program trains staff members working in home-visiting or family-service positions. The training leads to a nationally recognized one-year certificate that demonstrates competency and skills in working with families using a strength-based approach.
