  • Early Head Start is for infants, toddlers, and expectant mothers who meet income requirements. 
  • Early Literacy Programs and Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters (HIPPY) work with parents to help prepare their children for school. 

Community liaisons are available to assist families with the registration process and answer any questions. For more information, visit the Early Childhood Registration webpage
