Description: The Head Start program (for children ages 3-5) and Early Head Start program (for pregnant women, infants, and toddlers) are comprehensive early childhood development programs that support income-eligible families as well as strengthen children’s skills to promote success in later life. Children who attend Head Start participate in a variety of educational activities that promote early learning in the areas of science, language, literacy, math, fine and large motor skills and social-emotional development. Head Start is not just for children. It is a family-centered program where parents are encouraged to become active partners in their child’s learning. Parent education, family support and social services are available to support and empower Head Start families. Families may participate in meetings or training involving topics on: health, CPR, job preparation, parenting and nutrition and may learn about many community resources.
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.
|Brief Description: The written medical statement from the health care provider must also state whether the child is a child with special health care needs and, if so, what special provisions, if any, will be necessary in order for the child to participate in child day care. When the written statement from the health care provider advises the day care program that the child being enrolled is a child with special health care needs, the day care program must work together with the parent and the child's health care provider to develop a reasonable health care plan for the child while the child is in the child day care program. The health care plan for the child must also address how the day care program will obtain or develop any additional competencies that the staff will need to have in order to carry out the health care plan for the child.|
