The Parent-Child Home Program is an evidence-based, research-validated, early childhood program that prepares low-income two- and three-year-olds for school success by helping parents create language and literacy-rich home environments and support their children's social-emotional development. Trained paraprofessionals work with families who have not had access to educational and economic opportunities. Over the course of two years, they provide each family with 92 home visits and 46 books and educational toys (often the first books in the home), paving the way towards strong parent-child relationships and future academic and life success.

The Program not only rigorously maintains the high quality and effectiveness of its home visiting services , but is also committed to spreading its reach to significantly increase the number of children and families served. Through the National Center's and replication sites' high quality services and continuous advocacy and outreach, the Program plays a critical role in bridging the achievement gap.
