Early Years professionals offer a variety of free programs and services throughout Huron County. We provide early learning programs for children including songs, stories, games, crafts, plus opportunities for children to develop their social skills and Kindergarten readiness skills.
Our programs are fun for children and teach parents new activities to do with their children at home; parents and caregivers have opportunities to ask questions about their child's development. A resource library of books and videos on parenting skills, as well as children's books are available for loan.
