Meet The Staff
Children’s readiness for school and beyond is fostered through individualized learning experiences. Through relationships with adults, play, and planned and spontaneous instruction, children grow in many aspects of development.
Head Start programs promote school readiness of children ages birth to five from low-income families by supporting their development in a comprehensive way.
All children receive health and development screenings, nutritious meals, oral health and mental health support. Programs connect families with medical, dental, and mental health services to ensure that children are receiving the services they need.
Here at Head Start, we believe that you are the most important part in your child’s education and overall development.
