Head Start is a federal program that promotes the school readiness of children ages birth to 5 from low-income families.
Our Head Start and Early Head Start program provides educational activities, health services, nutritious meals, and self-sufficiency supports for the entire family.
Head Start plays a key role in the development of children, who would otherwise not be provided the opportunity. Our teachers and staff members are dedicated to the success of your child.
Head Start is a federal program that promotes the school readiness of children ages birth to 5, from low-income families by enhancing their cognitive, social, and emotional development.
Head Start programs provide a learning environment that supports children’s growth in:
- Language and literacy
- Cognition and general knowledge
- Physical development and health
- Social and emotional development
- Approaches to learning
Head Start provides comprehensive services to enrolled children and their families, which include health, nutrition, social services, and other services determined to be necessary by family needs assessments, in addition to education and cognitive development services. Head Start services are designed to be responsive to each child and family’s ethnic, cultural, and linguistic heritage.
A critical part of Head Start’s role is focused on nutrition. We provide our children with two-thirds of their daily nutritional needs, which is important not only for their health and well-being but for their intellectual and social development. Many children living in poverty are facing malnourishment, hunger, or can be overweight and/or obese. Head Start offers nutritious, ethnically diverse, and child-friendly food through a state-of-the-art food service program.
Volunteering at Head Start
Head Start volunteers play a crucial and active role in children’s health and welfare by offering their time and professional services to help ensure each child receives the education, treatment, and support that will lead them to a healthy and fulfilling life.
