Head Start

Head Start promotes school readiness by enhancing the skills and social development of children through a comprehensive preschool curriculum meeting School Readiness goals. Programing is inclusive and supports children with disabilities.  Family classroom involvement and site activities promote parents as a child’s first teacher; while supporting family educational, literacy and self-sufficiency goals. Program resources promote health, safety and nutrition; as well as mental health and disability services which ensure full participation for each child. Healthy meals, dental and hearing screenings, skill assessments and parent teacher collaborations provided enhance a child’s success.  Family Engagement program events further connect parents to their child’s development and education goals.

Enrollment for income eligible families occurs throughout the year with center based and home based program options.
