• Parent-Child Home Program

    PArent Child Home

  • The Parent-Child Home Program is a national research-based early childhood literacy, parenting, and school readiness program. The Parent-Child Home Program encourages verbal interactions and play between preschoolers and their parents using developmentally appropriate books and toys. Children learn about concepts such as colors, shapes, and counting. Parents learn to encourage the development of vocabulary, concepts and oral language skills as they interact with their children using materials provided by the program.

    The Parent-Child Home Program serves families of children ages 24 months - four years old. Participating families are visited twice each week by trained Home Educators. Home visits are scheduled on Mondays and Wednesdays or on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Families may participate in the program for up to two years.  English and Spanish-speaking Home Educators are available.  The Parent-Child Home Program is provided at no cost to participating families.
