NCO Early  Head Start provides your infants and toddlers (ages 0-3) with the activities that help them grow mentally, socially, emotionally, and physically. These experiences set a secure foundation for your children’s later success in school. You will help your child’s teacher or home base educator in setting goals for your child’s learning.  We offer services in two different ways, in our center base option or our home base option in both English and Spanish.

Center Base

NCO Head Start provides a safe and supportive place where children ages 0-3 can participate in a child development program where they can grow and learn in a positive setting. We do this by assigning one caregiver to your child or small group of children to serve as the primary source of care, this provides the time and intimacy for your child’s need to learn about themselves and form meaningful relationships.Our staff members carefully tend to every important detail so that each child can enjoy a beneficial experience while honoring the parent as the child’s primary teacher.  

Home  Base

NCO Head Start home visits provide comprehensive services to support and strengthen the relationships between you and your infant or toddler. The strength and quality of these relationships are essential for your child’s optimal developmental outcomes during this period of rapid social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development.  We support your relationships and your child’s development in a combination of ways:

  • By honoring that the parent is the child’s primary teacher;
  • By participating in weekly home visits with one of our home base educators where together, you watch and think about your child, and help your child learn using your families' interactions, daily routines, and household materials; and
  • By attending socializations twice a month where you can meet and connect with other families.
