Early LearningThe Centers provides early learning programs through the Early Head Start, Head Start, and Universal Pre-kindergarten programs. It provides early learning programming at centers across Greater Cleveland and through a comprehensive, home-based service team.The Centers' First 2,000 Days of Learning takes place at seven early learning centers across Northeast Ohio. Each offers:- Part- and full-day programs available at most locations- Well-rounded curriculum taught by highly qualified teachers and staff- Comprehensive support services that respond to the unique needs of each child- Clean, safe, and inviting indoor and outdoor space- Healthy meals (breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snack)The Centers understands that each child and family is different so we offer several program options to deliver the best results. For our families who cannot travel to our centers, we provide an in-home early learning program that includes home visits by qualified teachers and frequent opportunities for group socialization. We are recognized by the State of Ohio Step Up to Quality rating system. A child's experiences during the first 2,000 days, from birth to the start of kindergarten, have a lasting impact on later success in school and life. Our 2,000 Days Pledge is an educational promise between teachers and parents that emphasizes the importance of a shared partnership and approach for putting children on the right path to high school graduation and beyond.

At an initial appointment, a client's height, weight, temperature, blood pressure, and heartbeat are checked. A doctor or nurse practitioner will talk with the patient about health history and current habits.Addiction and Substance Abuse Counseling and CareAddiction is on the rise in our community and intervention is key to recovery. The Center' drug and alcohol counselors conduct one-on-one assessments with clients to determine the degree of potential substance abuse and then work with the client, family members, or a close friend on a recovery plan which can include individual counseling and group therapy.PharmacyClients can receive and pick up a prescription at one of our five community pharmacies. If it's determined that it would be helpful to visit a client at home to help them with medication compliance, our pharmacists make home visits.
