Early Head Start

Pathfinder Kids Kampus offers both center-based, home-based or a combination of these services through Early Head Start programming. Early Head Start focuses on working with children ages birth to age 3, as well as developing close relationships with parents, including Prenatal Moms. Our Family Educators work with parents on developing family goals and plans to develop the whole child through discovery, developmental milestones, nutrition and assistance with Collaborative efforts and resources are shared with all community human services agencies throughout Huntington County to enhance family goals and outcomes.

We strive to supply an enriching program to inspire your child to learn and discover new things. Research shows that in the first 5 years of life, a child develops 90 percent of his or her adult brain; therefore all Early Head Start activities and creative curriculum are directed to the development of the child.
