What is the Parent-Child Home Program?

pchp outcomes

Nationwide, more than 84% of kids who complete the Parent-Child Home Program graduate from high school – compared to just 54% of their socioeconomic peers.

PCHP is an evidence-based early literacy, parenting, and school readiness model that is committed to closing the achievement gap by providing income eligible families the skills and materials they need to prepare their children for school and life success.

Each week, early literacy specialists provide the family with a high-quality book or educational toy that is a gift to the family and are often the first such items in the home.  Using the book or toy, the literacy specialist models reading, conversation, and play activities designed to stimulate parent-child interaction, develop language and literacy skills, and build school readiness.

For more information, please contact Lynne Creed, PCHP Manager.
