The Home Start Program: Guidelines.
The Home Start Program objectives are: (1) to involve parents directly in the educational development of their children; (2) to help strengthen in parents their capacity for facilitating the general development of their own children; (3) to demonstrate methods of delivering comprehensive Head Start-type services to children and parents for whom a center-based program is not feasible; and (4) to determine the relative costs and benefits of center- and home-based comprehensive early childhood development programs, especially in areas where both types of programs are feasible. This guide presents: Home Start Program Components and Requirements; The Delivery of Home Start Services; Selection of Home Start Program Locations; Recruitment of Families for Home Start; Training of Home Start Staff; Administration of Home Start Programs; and Evaluation.
