Parent Child Home Program (PCHP)

The Parent-Child Home Program (PCHP) is an innovative, home-based literacy and parenting program.  Published research demonstrates that the Parent-Child Home Program prepares children for later school success.

  • If you are a parent of a child who is two, or will be two by December 1, you and your child may be eligible for the Parent-Child Home Program.
  • PCHP is a free and voluntary program.
  • Children begin the program when they are two years old and continue with the program for two years.
  • The goal of the program is to increase a child’s language and school readiness skills through play by using toys and books.
  • The program follows the school calendar, beginning in September, and ending in April.
  • A home visitor will go into the home twice a week.  She will bring free educational toys and books that your child can keep, and she will show you fun ways to help your child learn through play.
  • Parents are expected to participate during the visits.
