Prenatal to Age 3

The ROE 33 Early Childhood Prenatal to Age 3 Program serves the families and children in Henderson, Knox, Mercer, and Warren counties. Family Educators will work with the families at home visits on establishing goals centered around family well-being, child development, Parent-Child Interactions, and common areas of concern for parents.

The Family Educator will bring activity bags, resources and parent handouts to each visit to help nurture and support these goals.

The following services are available at no charge to families:

  • Developmental Screenings
  • Personal Visits
  • Goal Setting
  • Group Meetings
  • Resource Library

Prenatal to Age 3 is grant funded through the Illinois Board of Education, and free for Prenatal and families with children under the age of three. The purpose is centered around family well-being, child development, and common areas of concern for parents.

Our mission is to partner with parents to strengthen families and design an environment which maximizes each child's potential.

YMCA Partnership

The Regional Office of Education #33 collaborates with the YMCA Early Learning Center to offer a Center-Based Program for the families in our communities.  Enrolled families with children 0-3 can utilize both the ROE 33 Parents as Teachers program and the Knox County YMCA Early Learning Center.

Parent Educators will focus on establishing and meeting the child's goal during the day while at the Center, and families can focus on family goals in the evening once a month with their Parent Educator.  Families can also take advantage of monthly playgroups, screenings, parenting information, and tips offered right at the Center.
