LHDC Early Head Start is a home-based program that provides services to pregnant women and children 0-3.
Weekly home visits are individualized for each family’s needs and child’s interests and developmental stage.
Home Visitors perform developmental screenings and plan educational activities for parents and children to improve school readiness.
Socializations and Family Gatherings provide opportunities for children and parents to interact with peers, participate in activities, and learn new things.
Transition services help your child enter Head Start or another preschool program.
LHDC Head Start provides services to children 3-5. Our educational philosophy is based on the theory that children learn best through child-initiated play.
Classrooms are child-centered and developmentally based.
We provide a warm and inviting environment ensuring that children feel important and safe to foster positive social interactions, creativity, independence, and self-esteem.
We offer materials and experiences that are play-based and child-initiated to develop school readiness skills.
LHDC Head Start believes that children learn best when parents are actively engaged, and therefore, parent involvement is an essential element of the program.
