Early Head Start
Our Early Head Start program is currently enrolling for fall! Please fill out the form below to get more information!
We believe that parents are a child's first and most important teachers and are true partners in University Settlement's Early Head Start Program. Families and staff work together to design a comprehensive and effective plan that will ensure each child's individual goals are met. Services include:
Parents and children receive TWO home visits per month (90 minutes apiece) and either parent-child socialization groups each Friday (90 minutes) OR infant/toddler classroom groups twice a week (either Monday & Wednesday or Tuesday & Thursday, 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. or 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.).
Our Early Head Start program has also collaborated with the renowned Ackerman Institute for the Family to implement a parent-child program to support social-emotional development and school readiness. We encourage you to consider enrolling while pregnant to take full advantage of the many benefits our Early Head Start program has to offer!
Services are available in English, Spanish, Cantonese and Mandarin.
Servicios disponibles en Inglés, mandarín, cantonés y español. 提供華語服務（國語和粵語). 提供华语服务（国语和粤语).

What People Say
"I am so happy to see that my child has become more and more open since he began attending the program. He is not as shy as before and that will help when he goes to pre-school." --Parent
