Early Head Start


Early Head Start is a program for pregnant women and families with children up to 3 years. Our Early Head Start program is home-based. Our talented staff visits you in your home, where you and your child are most comfortable. Since 1998 Waukesha County’s Early Head Start has served hundreds of pregnant women and families with children under the age of three. Our overall goal is to partner with you, your child’s most important teacher, to ensure your baby’s healthy development during the critical early years. We have now brought this program to Washington County.
