Early Childhood Development Center & Early Head Start Center-Based Programs

Our Early Childhood Development Centers provide free Early Head Start and Head Start services to low-income families. Early Head Start provides services to children six weeks to age 3. Head Start provides services to children age 3 to 5 years old. Through the Montessori approach, the center ensures children are ready for school by providing a variety of developmentally appropriate activities that promote cognitive, social, emotional, language-literacy and physical development.
