About the Provider

Description: Head Start began in 1965. The program is designed to foster healthy development in low-income children. Programs deliver a range of services, responsive and appropriate to each child’s and each family’s heritage and experience that encompass all aspects of a child’s development and learning. Every program must meet the needs of the federal Head Start Performance Standards and other applicable regulations.

It is the goal of Head Start to ensure that children begin school ready to learn. Activities are directed toward the skill and knowledge domains and domain elements.

Fully incorporating children with disabilities is a required element of the Head Start program. This initiative is beneficial to all involved, children with and without disabilities, parents and staff.

Family and community partnerships recognize the vital contributions made by parents and community members. Both groups are involved in the operation, governance and the evaluation of the Head Start program. In the area of program management and operation, there is strong focus on delivering high-quality child development services to children for low- income families.
