Parent-Child Home Program

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 4 years, in neighborhoods near our clinical practices. Our program is unique in training local members of refugee communities to become Home Visitors. 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 Home Visitor provides a wealth of fun learning resources, equipping parents as their child's first teacher and laying a foundation for long-term academic success.
