All services (Early Education, Child Care, Early Intervention, Early Head Start) are provided 12 months a year. This allows for continuity for child, families and staff; there is also less regression for children over the summer months. Children aged birth through five grow and develop so quickly – and with the elimination of three months of service per year, this could be a significant regression factor. Babies are born 12 months out of the year, and doctors, nurses, public health, parents, hospital staff and DFS need to be able to refer at point of need.
