Child care and early childhood education can be an exciting adventure! For children ages 0-3, our child care centers provide babies, toddlers, and their caregivers with the tools they need to learn and thrive. Our programs are part of the federal Early Head Start (EHS) initiative. Like all our work here at Maternity Care Coalition (MCC), we aim to provide culturally responsive services to the whole family, making sure both children and their caregivers are supported.
About Early Head Start
Our Early Head Start (EHS) model is evidence-based, which means the model has been researched, tested, and proven that if implemented correctly, children will have positive outcomes. We focus on helping children become ready for school, supporting families in meeting their goals, and supporting overall health and well-being. We aim to foster an inclusive, safe environment where every child can explore, discover, and flourish and parents are engaged in all aspects of the program.
At each center we have dedicated rooms assigned by age to ensure we tailor our approach to each child’s unique developmental needs. Our centers have classrooms for infants (birth – 12 months), young toddlers (12 months – 24 months), and older toddlers (24 months – 36 months).
Additionally, every center has a Gross Motor Room which allows for indoor activities to promote physical and social development for the children. We also have outdoor playgrounds where, weather permitting, children engage in daily outdoor play.
