Early Head Start (EHS) is a free, state and federally funded program designed to promote school readiness for children from low-income families.

EHS serves pregnant women and families with children under age 3. 

The primary focus of EHS is child development, parenting, goals to strengthen the family and self-sufficiency.  EHS encourages parent involvement through regular visits to the child’s home, regular opportunities for parents to volunteer in the program, and special activities. 

 A center-based child care center, along with family child care providers, respond to the needs of working EHS families by offering high-quality, full-day, full-year child care, for low-income working families. 

EHS is open to families who meet income-eligibility in Ellis, Rush, Russell and Rooks County. 

Parent Educators meet with home-based parents weekly. Center-based family and child care families receive monthly contacts.
