Early Head Start



Learning Begins at Birth

Parents are Your Child's First Teacher!


Early Head Start (EHS) supports parents with two options of service:

  • First, we offer a home-base option in which families receive weekly, 90 minute visits from a Early Head Start Home Visitor to support both parents and children in the area of child development in their own home setting.
  • A second option is the childcare option, designed for parents who are students or working and in need of childcare. Home visits are made monthly by EHS Family Advocates to serve as a bridge from the childcare center to the home.
  • See what is new and happening in Early Head Start and the Child Care Partnership Opportunities.  Watch KOAM TV 7's Veronica Utecht who reported on Economic Security Corporation's child care opportunities and learn what Public and Private Partnerships will mean for 10 Southwest Missouri Communities.
