Early Access/Early Childhood

Purpose: The purpose of the Early ACCESS program is for families and staff to work together in identifying, coordinating and providing needed services and resources that will help the family assist their infant or toddler to grow and develop. The Early Childhood Department's goal is to deliver and coordinate quality services between families and community providers.

Services Offered: Early ACCESS is a partnership between families with young children, birth to age three, and providers from the Departments of Education, Public Health, Human services, and Child Health Specialty Clinics. The Early Childhood Department provides a variety of services to families with children from birth to school age in cooperation with the local school districts.
