Programs

PCHP QuoteThe programs offered by Miss Ruby’s Kids are designed to stimulate verbal interaction between the parent and child and build parents’ confidence as their child’s first, best teacher.  Programs are limited to children at risk of school failure and are offered free to families and care providers. After families complete our two-year program, we continue to support children throughout their school careers.


Parent-Child Home

Miss Ruby’s Kids replicates this research-based, home-visitation program to prepare some of the estimated 300 children born at risk of school failure each year in Georgetown County for success in school.  Specially trained Home Visitors come to homes of 2- and 3-year-old children twice-weekly for two years and model to parents ways in which children can become enthusiastic learners through books and toys.  Research shows that children who complete the two-year program go on to graduate from high school at the rate of 84% compared to South Carolina’s 77.5% rate in 2013.

Family Child Care Homes

Building on the highly successful Parent-Child Home Program model, our experienced staff models to child care providers proven methods to stimulate verbal interaction with their client children over nine months of twice-weekly visits.  The children’s parents receive a notebook of guides to the curriculum books, receive a monthly newsletter of literacy-based activities, and are encouraged to borrow the books to use at home.

Education Mentor

This newly initiated program provides trained volunteer mentors for graduates of Miss Ruby’s Kids. It began as an in-school pilot at Waccamaw Elementary School in January 2009. The Education Mentor Program will be expanded to include Kensington Elementary School as well as Maryville Elementary School in September 2009.

The program mentors will help to insure our graduates’ success throughout their school years by working with school administrators and parents to ensure their support, as well as with the children.
