Early Head Start and Head Start Programs
Through our Early Head Start and Head Start programs, we are able to provide families with an experienced Home Visitor who works with the caregiver and child in the home once a week for an hour and a half. Home Visitors help parents learn about their child’s development through a series of activities and assessments drawn from the Growing Great Kids (GGK) curriculum. In our home-based programs, parents attend social activities at our centers where they meet with other families and form relationships within their community. These home-based services are offered in the Mid-Wilshire district and in Compton.
