Early Head Start is a state funded early childhood program that serves pregnant women and children ages birth through three.
What makes Early Head Start different from other early childhood development programs is that we focus on the whole family and child to help ensure that each has the tools needed to be successful, each pregnancy healthy, and each child having the best start in life possible. By providing these services early in the life of a child, school success increases and families are connected to the resources they need. Different program options are available to ensure a good fit for each child and family.
Home-based Early Head Start is available throughout Itasca and Koochiching Counties and a Early Head Start Classroom is available in Grand Rapids.
