Education Can Never Come too Early
Our home-based program provides infants and toddlers a high-quality early childhood education program for income-eligible pregnant mothers and parents with new-born to three-year old children. With weekly ninety-minute visits to your home you will receive supports such as child development activities, information, and education; physical and mental health, dental, and nutrition education; referrals to community resources.
Our center-based program provides toddlers ages 16 months to 3 years old with a high-quality, small group education program. Children at the University center must receive Child Care Assistance to be eligible for the year-round, full-day programming. Child Care Assistance is not required to attend the Battle Creek center, which follows the typical Head Start school year. All children receive at least 2 meals each day, rest time, and outside play.
