Description: DAEOC Head Start has grown to be one of the largest rural Head Start Programs in the United States of America after its humble beginnings as a six-week summer pilot program in 1965.
Head Start programs support the mental, social and emotional development of children ages 3-5 years. In addition to education and care services, programs provide children and their families with health, nutrition, social, and other services. Head Start services are responsive to each child and family's ethnic, cultural, and linguistic heritage.
Head Start encourages the role of parents as their child's first and most important teachers. Programs build relationships with families that support positive parent-child relationships, family well-being, and connections to peers and community. Head Start began as a program for preschoolers. The DAEOC Head Start program has sixteen Head Start Centers located in Dunklin, New Madrid, Mississippi, Pemiscot, Scott, and Stoddard counties.
Where possible, ChildcareCenter provides inspection reports as a service to families. This information is deemed reliable, but is not guaranteed. We encourage families to contact the daycare provider directly with any questions or concerns, as the provider may have already addressed some or all issues. Reports can also be verified with your local daycare licensing office.
