MACAA Early Head Start
Beginning Summer 2021, MACAA will begin offering Early Head Start to our community. Early Head Start is available to eligible children, birth to age 3, in the City of Charlottesville, and the counties of Albemarle, Fluvanna, Louisa and Nelson. New infant, toddler and two-year-old classes will operate at MACAA’s Park Street Center in Charlottesville, with a total of 48 center-based slots. An additional 12 slots will be available in our home-based program. The center-based program will operate year-round with extended day hours expected. The home-based program is a home visiting program that takes place in the family’s home once per week for 90 minutes, in addition to group socialization activities offered twice per month. Early Head Start is also available to pregnant women. Both Early Head Start and Head Start are free to eligible families. For questions regarding MACAA’s programs, please contact Lina Abril-Montoya at (434) 295-3171 ext. 3008.
