El programa en el hogar Early Head Start de Foundling funciona en Puerto Rico y atiende a embarazadas, bebés y niños pequeños. El programa promueve fuertes relaciones entre padres e hijos y ayuda a proporcionar experiencias de aprendizaje temprano de alta calidad.

    Los servicios de educación de apoyo para la primera infancia para las familias nuevas y futuras son fundamentales para preparar a los niños para una oportunidad de por vida. El objetivo de nuestro programa Early Head Start es preparar a los niños pequeños de comunidades desatendidas para la preparación escolar para que cada uno tenga éxito en la escuela y en la vida después de la escuela. Para lograr este objetivo, brindamos servicios a niños y familias en áreas centrales de aprendizaje temprano, salud y bienestar familiar, al tiempo que involucramos a los padres y cuidadores como socios en cada paso del camino.
