PCHP, an evidence-based early literacy, parenting, and school readiness model, is committed to closing the achievement gap by providing low-income families the skills and materials they need to prepare their children for school and life success.

Trained Home Visitors work with families in their homes two times a week for two years. Families begin the program when their child is 2 to 2½ years old. Your Home Visitor will come to your home to play and read with you and your child!

I learned how to be closer with my little girl and help her with learning.

Did you know that…?

…the more you read and speak to your child, the better he/she will do in school?

…as a parent, you are your child’s first and most important teacher?

…your home is your child’s first classroom?

…children learn best through play?

I felt really honored to be in the program. I don’t know what I would have done without it.
