About Prenatal Services
If you are pregnant and looking for childcare services upon delivery, we have a free childcare program just right for you!
The prenatal period of growth and development has a lasting impact on the child's potential for healthy growth and development after birth. With the intention of providing Early Head Start services to the child upon delivery, AEL offers services to pregnant women and their families through the child's first three years of life.
A healthy pregnancy has a direct influence on the health and development of a newborn child. AEL works to provide the best impact by offering services as early in life as possible.
