EdCC's Early Head Start program has openings


Last updated 10/27/2016 at Noon

Edmonds Community College Head Start and Early Head Start has recently expanded the EHS portion of its program and is actively looking to enroll 92 more infants and toddlers.

Early Head Start is a home-based program that also includes two socialization events per month. The program is extending its service area to include Edmonds, Lynnwood, Mukilteo, Everett and Monroe.

EHS would like to reach out to all families that qualify, but specifically to those families who have children aging out of other 0-3 programs but who are still too young for preschool.

This means the program will enroll not only newborns, infants and toddlers, but also children at the upper end of the 0-3 age range. Some examples of this would be children aging out of Nurse Family Partnerships or Part C services.

With this kind of growth, EHS is also actively seeking home visitors. Home visitors work directly with parents, forming a professional, nurturing, collaborative partnership with each parent.

Snohomish County Head Start’s Early Head Start program enrolls infants and toddlers through the age of 3 years old. The home visitor delivers EHS comprehensive services (child development and learning, parent education, health, and family support) in weekly 90-minute home visits.

Twice a month, the home visitor and all his or her assigned families meet for a parent-child playgroup (called group socialization). Each home visitor carries an average caseload of 10-12 families with infants and toddlers.

Early Head Start also has a variety of full- and part-time positions open ongoing on its website. For more information, go to
