Early Head Start

Infants can begin Socialization Classes at 6 weeks. Infant and Toddlers benefit through socialization classes with their peers and opportunities to explore the world around them.

Each Early Head Start class enrolls up to 9 children with 3 teachers. Socialization hours are from 9:00-3:30, Monday thru Thursday and 9:00-3:30 on Fridays.

Early Head Start provides formula and appropriate meals and snacks. We also provide diapers only during Socialization hours of 9:00 - 3:30.

The Early Childhood Program's door is always open and we encourage parents to visit or volunteer. Due to our federal funding, we count time donated, if you are visiting the classroom please ask the teacher to sign an In-kind Form.

Within the first 45 days we will be asking parents to complete an Ages and Stages Screening and a social & emotional screening using The Devereux Early Childhood Assessment. Parents are notified if further assessment is needed in any of these areas.

Children who are referred for additional assessment are referred to the Holly Ridge. http://www.hollyridge.org/index.html

Consistent attendance is crucial for your child's progress in school. You must notify us at (360) 297-6300 if your child is going to be absent. Please give the reason for your child's absence. If your child does not attend consistently and we are unsuccessful in getting your child in class, your child may be dropped from the program. You will have the option of placing your child on the waitlist for enrollment at a later date.

Childcare is provided before and after Socialization.Girls With Drum
