Group-Based - The group-based (Center-Based) program is a comprehensive parenting program utilized by agencies where parents attend over a period of years. Programs like Head Start offer Center based parenting education. Many agencies modify the length of the group sessions to 1 1/2 hours to allow more interactive time between parent and child.
Home-Based - The 55 Session home-visitation program is commonly used by agencies offering long-term support to families raising children infancy to preschool. Many Healthy Start and Head Start agencies utilize the program as the basis of their parenting curriculum.
