Description: Head Start is a child development program designed for three to five-year-old children from low-income families with the hope of breaking the cycle of poverty. The Head Start approach involves including the parent as the child’s primary educator and getting the entire family and community involved. Since 1965, Head Start has been helping meet children’s needs by offering the following services:
Health—Medical and dental health screening and follow-up is designed to help children feel their best.
Nutrition—Head Start serves a nutritious breakfast, lunch and snack and promotes nutrition awareness to help children build strong bodies.
Parent Involvement/Social Services–Families, whose basic needs are met and who are involved in the lives of their children, provide their children with a wonderful head start in life!
Education—Our program is designed to meet the social/emotional, intellectual, language and physical needs of children
Disabilities—Our program is enriched with the presence of others with disabilities. Least 10% of the children in our program have disabilities.
Mental Health—We contract with a licensed psychologist, our Healthy Living Counselor to provide services to children, families, and staff.
Where possible, ChildcareCenter provides inspection reports as a service to families. This information is deemed reliable, but is not guaranteed.
