Early Head Start-Child Care Partnership
The Nebraska Early Childhood Collaborative is proud to be an Early Head Start – Child Care Partnership grantee.
Each year, NECC’s Early Head Start–Child Care Partnership serves children and their families through our partnerships with Educare Omaha Early Learning Centers, Child Saving Institute (CSI), Children’s Respite Care Center (CRCC), and other community child care providers.
Comprehensive Family Engagement Programs
Each family is assigned a Family Engagement Specialist who works with them from the time of enrollment to set and achieve goals for themselves and their child.
Education and Training for Children and Parents
Educational Coaches and Social Emotional Specialists ensure high-quality teaching practices are used throughout the program, and support monthly literacy activities and classroom parent get-togethers.
Each child and family has access to a Health Specialist who can provide resources and referrals for medical and dental needs, including hearing and vision screenings, nutrition information, and safety guidance.
Breakfast, lunch and snacks are provided according to high-quality nutritional guidelines established by the Child and Adult Care Food Program Provider (CACFP).
