  • Head Start
  • 3PK
  • Universal Pre-K

Early Head Start's (EHS) mission is to promote healthy prenatal outcomes for pregnant women, enhance the development of the very young child, and promote healthy family functioning.  The program provides education, health, dental, mental health, and disability services through both home-based and combination program options.  Currently, participants are enrolled in the Auburn and Moravia areas of Cayuga County.  Participants in the EHS program have the opportunity to receive early, continuous, intensive, and comprehensive child development and family support services from pregnancy to age 3, at which time they can transition to the Head Start program and continue services until entering Kindergarten.

Head Start is a comprehensive child development program for income eligible children ages 3-5 and their families.  The program provides health, nutrition, education, disability, and family services at no charge.  The Agency's Head Start program partners with the local school districts to offer Universal Pre-Kindergarten (UPK) services in coordination with Head Start services. The Agency provides full day UPK programming in partnership with the Auburn, Moravia, Southern Cayuga and Jordan-Elbridge School Districts. Read more…
