Early Childhood @ MCC: Home Based Early Head Start
Our Home-Based and Prenatal programs connect new and expecting families with a designated Home Visitor. Home Visitors meet with families weekly to provide support, guidance and a listening ear. Drawing on our extended team of educators, nurses and social workers, families are provided with resources on a wide range of topics including breastfeeding, safe sleep practices, nutrition and play. Regular socialization groups allow families to meet each other, share strengths and build community.
Visitors focus on all areas of parenting, including:
- Positive parenting styles
- Improving parent child communication
- Maternal and child health resources
- School readiness
- Early learning and early literacy activities
- Social and emotional well-being
Home Based Early Head Start meets each family wherever they are, and tailors programming to meet each families individual needs, and support each families unique strengths.
