Somerset County Early Head Start

Somerset County Early Head Start

Free for pregnant women and families with children birth to age 3.
 
Somerset County Early Head Start believes that school readiness begins prenatally and during the first days, weeks and months of life. Early loving, nurturing relationships that include meeting the child’s physical needs and assuring the child’s health and safety are essential to healthy brain development. When babies learn that they can trust and feel love and develop a bond with their parent, learning is stimulated.

The role of EHS is to provide a consistent, respectful and supportive relationship with parents through family-centered home visits so that parents support their child’s healthy development, understand typical developmental stages, establish a secure and trusting relationship with their child and provide a stimulating, developmentally-appropriate environment for their child by interacting with them and allowing them to play and explore. EHS will also provide resources to assist families in handling crises, obtaining needed resources and meeting their own goals.
