Vital Connections of the Midlands' Early Head Start Program is now enrolling infants and toddlers at two of its nationally accredited (National Association for the Education of Young Children) childcare centers, located in Arthurtown and lower Richland. These two sites have been granted funding for pregnant teen moms, low income mothers with infantsand toddlers, infants and toddlers with special needs, and infants and toddlers of Spanish descent.
The program will do health and literacy home visits as well as serve children at its two locations, and will offically begin in August.
Also needed are foster grandparents/classroom volunteers (English and Spanish speaking) to assist the licensed child care providers in the classrooms. Please call or email me with any questions. The potential families are welcomed to visit either child care facility for observation/and enrollment.
