About Parent-Child Home Program
The Parent-Child Home Program (PCHP) is an early literacy, strengths-based home visiting program that helps parents and caregivers prepare their children for 4K and school success. Families are matched with an Early Learning Specialist who supports parents and caregivers in their roles as their child’s first and most important teacher. Families enrolled in PCHP can expect:
- Visits with an Early Learning Specialist twice per week for a 2 year period. Visits are 30 minutes each, take place in the home, and are scheduled at a time that is convenient for the family.
- Each week families receive a free high quality educational book or toy that they keep to help support learning.
