Early Head Start has been partnering with local child care providers to deliver quality early care and education services since 2009. Federal and State funding for Early Head Start services are leveraged to ensure that infants, toddlers and their families enroll in programs that are in compliance with Local, State and Federal Regulations, have Healthy and Safe Environments, and have Qualified and Trained staff.
Partnerships come in all shapes and sizes. CMCA EHS invites community child care and early education providers to explore the opportunities of partnership. CMCA EHS partners with center based providers as well as family home care providers who are dedicated to quality early care and education of infants and toddlers. In addition to reimbursement for childcare services, EHS provides training and technical support, infant/toddler mental health resources, infant/toddler disability resources, health and nutrition resources and family development services.
