Serves low-income infant and toddlers ages six weeks to three years. Infants and toddlers can begin to receive Early Head Start services at any point in the year after they are 6 weeks old. (Note: placement is subject to eligibility and slot vacancy.) Early Head Start also provides support for income eligible Pregnant Women.
We also offer the Early Head Start Home-Based program in Volusia County. This program serves 24 children that are between the ages of six weeks and three. Our Home-Based Program is a continuation of the comprehensive services we offer at MFCS. It is a way to offer support, guidance, information, and child development services directly to children and families within their homes. Home visiting is also unique because it offers an opportunity for families to get the support they want in their own homes weekly.
Children must be 3 years old and families must meet eligibility guidelines.
