Re: Head Start...home visits? UPDATE in OP
Here in Iowa, it's mandatory to do 2 home visits a year for kids in qualifying 4yo preschool programs. It's because the state pays up to $2K (or something similar) for any 4yo in a qualifying program. I don't think it's legal to not actually do a home visit at home. I might consider reporting it.
But the home visit is just to see what the LO is like in their home environment.
