Head Start Home Base Returns
Imagine your child two years from now, five years, ten years, as an adult. What do you want for your child? What do you want your child to learn? What kind of person do you want your child to be?
The LCCAA Head Start Home base program helps parents help their child reach these goals-and plenty others. We are here to support you!
The Home Base option returns this Fall for the 2014-15 school year. The option is available for children ages 0-5 as a great alternative to a center base option.
How does the Head Start Home Base option work?
Once a week, a Head Start home visitor will come to your home (visits are scheduled in advance). Your child’s home visit will last 90 minutes. You, your spouse or partner, your child’s brothers and sisters, and any other household members can all take part.
You will talk together about your child and how things are going for your family. Together, you will plan activities for you to do with your child during home visits and during the week between visits.
Twice a month, you and your child will meet with other children and parents. You will have time to get to know one another and share experiences. Your home visitor will be there too. We call these meetings “socializations”.
One of the special things about Head Start is that mothers and fathers are truly involved. LCCAA’s Home Base program is designed to meet the needs of its children, families, and community. For more information please call 440-245-2009 or to register online click here.
Judie Emerine, a long-time Head Start employee, thought it would be a good idea to create a LCCAA Head Start Alumni board at the Hamilton center where she is the Site Administrator.
She invited Maria Vasquez (pictured on left), Assistant Site Coordinator and all Hamilton staff and parents to share their Head Start photos on the board.
During the Head Start Bridging ceremonies back in May, families gathered in front of the board to take photos and discussed their favorite Head Start memories.
