Early Head Start

Early Head Start is a federally funded program that works with low-income infants, toddlers, pregnant women, and their families. Services in Brown County are managed by Family Services of Northeast Wisconsin in collaboration with CESA 7, and focus on:

  • Enhancing children’s physical, social, emotional, and intellectual development

  • Assisting pregnant women with accessing comprehensive prenatal care

  • Supporting parents’ efforts to meet the challenges of parenting and fulfill their parental roles

  • Helping parents move towards self-sufficiency


Early Head Start supports children and their families through weekly home visits and bi-monthly group socialization/playgroup experiences. These services support and strengthen the relationship between infants, toddlers and their parents by:

  • Providing parents with opportunities to obtain feedback about their child’s interests, strengths, needs and resources

  • Allowing parents to observe their children interacting and responding to other children and adults

  • Sharing and learning from others about the challenges and joys of parenting


Admission Criteria

All services are free and voluntary to families living in Brown County who meet the income eligibility requirements.
