Early Head Start

little-girl-with-mirrorWhether you are the mother or a father of a young child, or an expectant parent, helping your child learn and grow is a big and exciting job. It’s also a hard job. Every parent can use some support now and then, and that’s what we’re here for!
Imagine your child three years from now:

  • What do you want for him?
  • What dreams do you have for her?
  • How do you want your child to do in school?

Whatever goals you have for your child, we are here to support you in achieving them as well as goals you may have for yourself–even goals that you might not have thought about. We’re here for you.
little-boyOur highly trained staff provides free comprehensive child development, health, nutrition, and social support services to pregnant women and children birth to 36 months who are low income in Kootenai, Bonner, and Shoshone counties.

By enrolling in our home based program, we will help you and your child reach these goals because we believe in you and want you to succeed!

  • Join Policy Council & Make a Difference!
    One of the most unique aspects of Early Head Start, is that parents have a voice in what happens in the program through participating in Policy Council. Together with community members, Policy Council parent representatives help us plan and carry out parent activities including hiring staff, serving on committees, assisting with developing program goals, analyzing the needs in our communities, and ensuring we make progress on our outcomes. Check out some of the items we’ve discussed recently by reading our monthly Policy Council Meeting Minutes here
