Delaware Early Childhood Center — Home-Based

New Directions Early Head Start-Kent County is a partner program of the University of Delaware providing services in the Kent County area to pregnant women and families of children birth to three years of age through home-based services.

Delaware Early Childhood Center (DECC) provides home based services  for 62 families by six home visitors. The families are comprised of pregnant women and families of children birth to three. These families receive weekly visits and emphasis is placed on the parents being their child’s first and primary educator.  Home-based services have been expanded with recent funding to focus on lower Kent County.

If you have a question about our DECC home-based program, please contact us!
