Parent-Child Home Program


box3-family-support

The Parent-Child Home Program (PCHP) is a national evidence-based literacy and parenting model. It provides parents with the knowledge and resources to build school readiness where it starts: the home. Extensive scientific research consistently has found that this model significantly improves parent-child interactions, increases school readiness and later school success, and reduces risks of child abuse and neglect—so much so that it has been recognized by the White House as an official Bright Spot in Hispanic Education. We are pleased to bring this nationally recognized program to families in Queens.

PCHP helps parents learn the best ways to bond with their child and give him or her the best start in life. Twice a week, a trained specialist visits the home and shows parents how they can help their toddler learn, grow, reach developmental milestones, and feel confident and safe. There is no cost for the program, and free books and toys are provided during the visits, along with guidance on using them.

Home visits take place between the hours of 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. Children must be at least 16 months old and less than three years old.
