About the Provider

Description: In Head Start, our goal is to help your child grow and develop. We know that you are your child?s first and most important teacher. We believe that young children learn best when they play. Children learn by exploring, trying new things and asking questions. When children play, they use their imaginations, bodies, power of choice, and problem solving skills. This helps them to become good learners. In Head Start we focus on areas of child development: 1. Social and emotional...2. Different ways to learn...3. Language and Literacy...4. Physical development...5. Logic and reasoning...6.English (if your family?s main language is not English)... Children and staff like to be outdoors in all kinds of weather. Children go outside every day, unless it is too cold (risk of frostbite), or there is a thunderstorm. Parents and Guardians are always welcome to visit their child in the classroom.
