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 11 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.
