What services will families receive?

  • A two-year scholarship to pay for full or part-time center or family-based child care and early education services starting when a child is three years old. Families will not have to pay anything.
  • Families with pregnant women or a child under one year of age and families whose children enter at age three will get free home visits from a parent mentor. Visits will last until the child enters kindergarten. Parent mentors will make home visits to encourage family health, give information about child development and choosing quality child care and early education, and help families get community resources.
