The Child and Family Services Division supports Dimock’s mission by providing, “accessible, comprehensive, innovative and culturally competent” education and support services to children, families and individuals from pre-birth to adulthood – designed to promote optimal development and economic stability. Programs in the Division include:

  • Early Head Start – center-based and home-based services to expectant families and children birth to 3 years
  • Head Start – center-based services for children ages 3-5 years
  • School Readiness – center-based child care for children ages 4 months to 5 years
  • Early Intervention – services for children birth to 3 years with disabilities and/or developmental delays

While all programs are based on Dimock’s main campus, Early Head Start, Head Start and Early Intervention also provide services in the community and in client’s homes. Child and Family Services’ programs work in collaboration with each other, Dimock’s Health and Behavioral Health divisions and community partners to provide high-quality services that address the comprehensive needs of the entire family.
