About Prime Time

Prime Time offers learning programs designed to strengthen families and communities by harnessing the humanities. Our programs seek to create lifelong learning pathways for children and families of all backgrounds. We rally educators and families to help children learn to share their ideas and think critically about the world around them.

Head Start Enrolling Now

Prime Time Head Start and Early Head Start are free, federally supported programs that promote school readiness for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers up to age five. Our programs are designed to support each child’s growth in a healthy learning environment with an inclusive focus on family well-being.


Prime Time Reading

Prime Time reading programs introduce children and their families to the humanities through storytelling and discussions that build the foundation for a lifelong love of reading and learning. Hosted by local community organizations, Prime Time programs are free to all participants and offered after school to provide the time and space for family bonding and engagement. At the heart of our reading programs are thematically grouped, carefully chosen, humanities-rich children’s books. Participating families receive copies of each book to begin or expand their own libraries.
