Early Head Start Program
This program is a partnership between Texas Tech University and StarCare Systems. Early Head Start is a program for pregnant women and families with children between the ages of 6 weeks to 3 years. There is no charge for this program. This program is comprehensive and serves families in the City of Lubbock.
Texas Tech Early Head Start believes that children reach their highest potential in an atmosphere of caring and respect that offers many opportunities to learn in ways that meet the needs of each individual child.
A nationally accredited program
In addition to remaining in good standing with the Office of Head Start and the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, this program is accredited through the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). The program is one of only three accredited programs in Lubbock, and the only program exclusively serving infants and toddlers who live in poverty and for whom all services are free of charge.
