Head Start Home Visiting
It is our goal to build strong and positive partnerships with parents. This takes place, over time, as home visitors meet with families regularly. Family Supports will schedule a minimum of (5) times throughout the school year to visit with you in your home.
During the visits, the Family Support will have the opportunity to share ideas, information, and resources in the community. Home visits are also times for parents to set goals for themselves and their children and explore ways to achieve them. Family Supports provide ongoing support and encouragement to parents to strengthen and individualize their Head Start experience.
Early Head Start Home Visiting
Home visits with a Family Educator occur weekly throughout the year for Early Head Start families. Home visits are part of the plan to work with you to make the most of the time you have with your child.
During the visits, families have the opportunity to plan and enjoy play activities, share ideas, be continually updated on parenting information and health follow-up, and be provided with referrals to other resources as needed. Home visits are also times for parents to set goals for themselves and their children and explore ways to achieve them. Home visitors provide ongoing support, encouragement and understanding to parents. These home visits are chances for you, your child, and the home visitor to spend time together to strengthen and individualize your Head Start experience.
