Early Head Start Program
Early Head Start is a federally funded grant program, administered by Texas Tech University. This program provides high quality childcare and home visitation services, free of charge, to families who qualify. This program primarily serves families living and working in east Lubbock and is located away from the University campus at 3315 E. Broadway.
Texas Tech University 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 four 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.
