Early Head Start - Child Care Partnerships

The Early Head Start-Child Care Partnerships (EHS-CCP) Program enhances and supports early learning settings to provide comprehensive and continuous services. It increases access to high-quality, full-day, full-year child care, including family child-care, for low-income working families. The program also supports the development of infants and toddlers through strong relationship-based experiences and prepares them for the transition into Head Start and preschool.

For Our Babies

On June 8, the House Ways and Means Human Resources Subcommittee introduced legislation to extend funding for the federal Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting (MIECHV) program, which is currently set to expire at the end of September 2017. The bill - Increading Opportunity through Evidend=Based Home Visiting Act would reauthorize the current program for five years at current funding levels.

Concerns

  • New evidentiary tier
  • State match requirements
  • Needs Assessment Process
  • Option to fund Home Visiting on a Pay-for-Success Basis
  • Current Payfor (The CUFF Act)

WHAT CAN WE OFFER YOUR FAMILY?
EHS PARENT QUOTE

"We were having a lot of troubles with [our daughter] and ear infections. Also, when she started talking, it was not clear. The doctors seemed unconcerned with the issues. [My EHS child care provider] helped me to get in touch with the speech evaluator. He came to our house with no cost to us. Our daughter failed the hearing test, which finally gave doctor's a reason to refer to a specialist and ended up doing tubes in her ears. Without [our child care provider], we would have just kept fighting with doctors."
