Early Head Start is a child development program that serves low-income families in Utah County with children ages birth to 36 months, as well as pregnant mothers and their families. We support parents as they help their young children grow and develop and provide resources and support to families.
Families participate together to promote child development, healthy family functioning, school readiness and family literacy. Experiences and activities are planned around parents’ goal for their children and families. Positive, nurturing parent-child interactions are the focus of all Early Head Start services. Early Head Start does not provide transportation to or from school, but transportation assistance, such as bus tokens, may be provided upon request.
