Early Head Start

The Child Center of NY offers a nationally accredited Early Head Start program for children prenatal to age three. The program provides continuous, intensive, and comprehensive child development and family support services to low-income infants, toddlers, pregnant women, and their families. Parenting education and the support of a positive parent-child relationship are integral to the program, as is a focus on supporting the whole child: their physical, social, emotional, cognitive, and language development. We offer home-based services that meet each family’s individual needs.
