Home Based Head Start
Telamon’s Head Start Home Visiting program provides home visiting for pregnant women and children, birth to five. Home visitors and parents work as partners to reach goals. Staff make home visits with pregnant mothers once a month (up to four visits a month if needed), focusing on prenatal education to prepare mothers for pregnancy, delivery, and postpartum recovery. Staff make 90-minute weekly home visits for infants and children and their work with families is focused on teaching parents to support optimal development for young children and school readiness for older children. As part of the services, your family may receive: developmental screening, ongoing observation and assessment, and curriculum planning, medical, dental, and mental health. Telamon also offers Group Connections, where a group of families come together to socialize and work on child growth and development, parenting, and the parent-child relationship. Prenatal socialization experiences are also offered for pregnant moms.
