Our Philosophy

Discovery Station Early Head Start (EHS), an MSDE-accredited child development center, helps parents successfully assume the role as their child’s first, and most important, teacher. We help to foster healthy attachments between parent and child, and partner with families to prepare children socially, emotionally, and developmentally for school.  

EHS programs provide intensive, comprehensive child development and family support services to low-income families with infants and toddlers, and to pregnant women and their families. Our compassionate and dedicated team works with each family to meet their individual needs and provide linguistically and culturally appropriate health, education, and social services.

We believe in creating an enriching and supportive environment that promotes healthy development of children. At the Discovery Station Early Head Start Center, we take pride in the welcoming and warm atmosphere we have established. During in-home visits, we strive to help our families create the same feeling by guiding them towards their goals and helping them learn important parenting skills.
