This summer, we're taking an in-depth look at each of our programs and how they work together to transform lives through education! If you've been thinking about getting involved in a program as a student, staff, or volunteer, be sure to follow this series! This week, we start where our education starts, in the In-Home program.
What is the In-Home program?
Guadalupe School's In-Home program provides weekly, one-hour home visits to families with children from prenatal to age three. Through the use of the "Parents as Teachers" curriculum, a parent educator supports and encourages each parent to be their child's first and most important teacher.
What makes this home visiting program unique?
According to program director, Moira Rampton her favorite part of the In-Home program is the continuity and foundation it provides for the other four programs. Unlike other preschool and home visiting programs, our children can stay in the Guadalupe programs from birth to sixth grade! Moira says it's fun watching the babies she and her staff visit grow up and become bright, ambitious young adults.
How do I get involved?
There are lots of ways to get involved in our In-Home program! To apply for your child, visit our application page here.

- Diapers and baby wipes
- Age appropriate books such as "board books"
- Peg puzzles
- Baby blankets
