EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION
FOR HAWAII’S MOST VULNERABLE KEIKI
WE BELIEVE that every child deserves bright and healthy futures. Early education plays a critical role during the important developmental period, especially among disadvantaged children. Investing in early education will have a tremendous impact on life outcomes and provide thriving futures for Hawaii’s young minds.
Federally funded initiatives provide early childhood education and related comprehensive services for low-income parents and children, and children with special needs. Early Head Start (EHS) provides services in centers and in homes to prenatal parents and parents with infants and toddlers. Head Start (HS) serves children ages three through five and their parents to provide a head start for school success.
The mission of EHS/HS is to assist families to be the best they can be by providing a safe, healthy and nurturing environment where both parents and children can continue to grow.
