Early Head Start provides comprehensive early childhood education, health, nutrition, and parent involvement services to low-income pregnant mothers, children 0-3 and their families.
Norwescap Early Head Start promotes the school readiness of young children from low-income families through the delivery of education, health, nutrition, mental health, and social services. Our program also engages and mobilizes the local community to provide the resources and an appropriate environment necessary to facilitate a comprehensive and integrated array of services to support children and families.
We strive to build relationships with families by supporting family well-being, encouraging strong relationships between parents and their children, and providing ongoing learning and development for parents and children.
Norwescap Early Head Start provides supportive learning environments for pregnant mothers, children, and families while creating opportunities for parents to work with trained staff to set goals and make plans for the future.
The program offers home visits for parent and child including planned activities that nurture and support children and help parents understand how their child is growing and learning. Developmental and health screening and assessments that ensure children are growing and learning are all part of the service. Children have the opportunity to enjoy classroom experiences and developmentally appropriate curriculum.
