Early Head Start Collaboration

Teen Parent Programming

This collaboration is between Harrisburg School District and Capital Area Head Start.  These two agencies will work together to serve low income teen parents with infants and toddlers. 

Marshall School Early Head Start Child Care
in collaboration with the
Harrisburg School District Pregnant and Parenting Teen Program


Marshall School’s Early Head Start early care and education center provides care for HSD high school students’ children ages six weeks to 36 months.  The curriculum and program philosophy is to create developmentally appropriate experiences and interactions that foster your child’s social, emotional, cognitive and physical growth.  Through hands on learning and exploratory play, your child will learn how to solve problems, socialize with others and develop independence and self-confidence.  Our teachers are caring individuals who are trained in early child development and will share the growth and progress of your child’s development through scheduled visits and/or daily communication.  EHS works collaboratively with the staff of the Pregnant and Parenting Teen Program to support the students with:
• Parenting education
• Attendance, family support issues, school and community advocacy
• Referral process to EHS and childcare funding

Marshall Early Head Start meets state certification requirements set by the PA Department of Public Welfare and federal Head Start regulations. We are designated a STAR level 3 program by the Keystone STARS quality initiative program.  This signifies that we actually exceed state health and safety regulations, based on staff education, the learning environment and the administration of the program. This rating serves as a means for you to recognize the high quality of programming here at Marshall EHS.

Hours of Operation: 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. during the school year.  During the summer months, staffs conduct weekly home visits and Family Days are scheduled twice a month.
