Description: The program was created in response to the mounting evidence that the earliest years are crucial for children’s physical, social, and emotional development, and builds on the Head Start program that began in 1965 to promote school readiness and to provide related services to preschoolers and their families. Early Head Start is a comprehensive child development program, offering FREE linguistically and culturally appropriate health, education, and social services to eligible families that include a pregnant woman and/or children, ages 0-3. Child-centered services of the highest quality are provided in the family’s home or in a child care center setting. Early Head Start’s family-driven philosophy empowers parents to support and nurture their children, while meeting other critical social and economic goals. Maternity Care Coalition Early Head Start services are provided in three of MCC’s nine direct service program sites: Norristown, Pottstown, and South Philadelphia. MCC partners with the Montgomery Early Learning Centers for the administration of center-based services in Norristown and Pottstown.
