Early Head Start

For children 0-3 years, our Child Development Centers offers the Early Head Start (EHS) program. Funded by the US Department of Health and Human Services, EHS offers comprehensive child development and family support services designed to break the cycle of intergenerational poverty and school failure by helping families support and encourage their children's early growth and development.

Family Childcare Network

Hope Street Margolis Family Center has organized a network of 10 licensed family childcare providers who offer developmentally enriched childcare for infants, toddlers, and pre-school aged children. Once licensed, providers participate in intensive, ongoing training and technical assistance activities that ensure high-quality care. Our Family Childcare Network also serves as an opportunity for families to start their own small businesses.
