    Taxonomy Code: HD-1800.8000

    Programs sponsored by states, local municipalities or local nonprofits that prepare children, usually age three to five, to succeed in school. The programs are modeled on Head Start/Better Beginnings/Brighter Futures programs and are compensatory in nature targeting children from low income families or those who have or are at risk for a disability and who may have special needs. Services may include comprehensive development screenings, active learning, parent education programs, family activities, early literacy exercises, home visits and healthy snacks during the school day. In some instances, the programs are entirely home-based and focus on providing materials, instruction and support that enable the parent to prepare their child for entering school. Occasionally, the programs refer to short acclimatization sessions to make new pupils familiar with the school and classroom environment before the formal start of the school year. Some programs offer text messaging as a way to encourage parent participation in early education activities.

    Family Connection of Easton - Early Childhood EducationEarly childhood programs: - The Parent-Child Home Program (PCHP): A home-based literacy program that prepares children and families for school success. Family literacy specialists visit participants’ homes twice a week for two years. During each visit, staff use books, toys, and games to model for the parent or caregiver how to help their child learn how to read, count, and identify objects. Families keep the educational materials so that learning continues in the home after the visit is over. In addition to home visits, families explore the community as a group by visiting places such as the library, fire station, and zoo. Kindergarten Connection is a community-wide initiative to improve communication, access to information and resources, and coordination of services so that there is a seamless transition of students from preschool or home to kindergarten.
