The Parent-Child Home Program (PCHP) at Jericho Road strives to even the academic playing field for at-risk children. We are a certified replication site of the National Parent-Child Home Program, a research-proven home visiting model which prepares young children for school success by increasing language and literacy skills, enhancing social-emotional development, and strengthening the parent-child relationship. 

The program serves families with children 18 months through four years, in neighborhoods near our clinical practices. Our program is unique in training local members of refugee communities to become Early Learning Specialists. By engaging language and culturally-matched home visitors, critical support is provided to families challenged by low education levels, literacy, and language barriers. 

Through games, toys, and books, children learn language and literacy skills and a strong parent-child bond is established. The program enables parents to create a language-rich home environment and prepares them to actively participate in their children's development and education. The Early Learning Specialist provides a wealth of fun learning resources, equipping parents as their child's first teacher and laying a foundation for long-term academic success.
