Early Childhood programs and services are available for children in our area from birth to five. Early On services are available to eligible children age birth to three and their families. We offer preschool programming through our Great Start Readiness Program. The Great Start Collaborative offers a way for families and community stakeholders to participate in helping to grow support for Early Childhood and opportunities for learning throughout our local communities.
When a child is born, every parent hopes that he/she will be healthy. Sometimes, however, things don't go as planned. The baby may be ill or may seem slow in doing things such as smiling, sitting up, or speaking. If you have a concern about your baby's health or development, Early On is a free service for infants and toddlers from birth to 36 months with developmental delay or conditions that could lead to such delay. It has been well established that early intervention is an effective way to prevent or reduce problems for children at a later age.
The Early On Program specializes in evaluating and treating children birth to three years of age that are not developing at the same rate as other children. This can include physical, mental, communication, adaptive, social or emotional development. Examples of available services can include: family training and counseling, teaching services, vision, hearing, speech, physical, and occupational therapy.
