Early Head Start Programs

Our Early Head Start and Nevada Ready programs offer comprehensive child development and family support services to low-income and underserved populations including expecting mothers, infants, toddlers and their families.

Our Early Head Start learning centers for children age 0-3 focus on:

  • promoting infant and toddler health and development
  • fostering positive family relationships
  • supporting parents as the primary decision makers and nurturers of their children

Nevada Ready classrooms for children age 3-5:

While Early Head Start serves infants and toddlers from 2 months to 3 years of age, our Nevada Ready classrooms allow a continuum to care for students in a traditional Pre-K program geared toward school readiness.

Tools and learning strategies are employed to enable the children to enter school ready to succeed. Sunrise Children’s Foundation bears the distinction of being 1 of 2 providers of Early Head Start programs in Clark County. Furthermore, the SCF Early Head Start program is regarded nationally as one of the premier educational programs throughout the United States Western region, serving 270 children throughout the valley.
