Early Head Start

Home based program for expectant women, infants & toddlers

music-friends-webThe Worcester Community Action Council’s Early Head Start program operates as a home-based model serving families from pregnancy through infants/toddlers to age three in Southern Worcester County. The focus of the Early Head Start program is to involve the parent or the primary care giver in the education of their child. Weekly home visits provide the opportunity for parenting support, education as well as community referrals. Early Intervention services are provided when needed.

Parents are considered the primary educator of their children, and therefore are strongly encouraged to become involved by attending parenting workshops, volunteering and becoming members of parent-center committees and policy council.

mommy-me-webEarly Head Start hosts weekly socializations at WCAC’s center located at 25 Cole Avenue, Southbridge, where the youngsters are provided an opportunity to meet new friends and interact with others their own age. Parents are likewise able to meet other parents of young children.


Family Friday Socials
are held the first, second and fourth Friday of the month from 10 a.m. – 12 noon and every third Thursday from 3:30 -5:30 p.m. to allow EHS parents to network and enjoy interactive play with their children.


 

snowflakeREMINDER: In the event of poor winter weather, WCAC’s Early Head Start program will follow Southbridge Public Schools with regard to school closings/delayed openings. Should you be uncertain, please call 508-765-4738 ext. 300  for updated information.
