• Head Start/Early Childhood Program
    Head Start is a comprehensive child development program that has been successfully serving low-income children and their families for over forty years. It is a child-focused program with an overall goal of increasing school readiness and socialization for young children three to five years old. This is accomplished by providing a rich preschool environment, engaging and supporting the family, and connecting with the community. 
    This program uses Conscious Discipline, which is built on the premise of developing discipline within children rather than applying discipline to them.

    Head Start services include:
    • Researched based curriculum (Project Construct)
    • Medical and Dental Screenings
    • Health nutritional assistance
    • Family Support and Referral Services
    Our Head Start and Early Childhood programs are offered in 1/2 Day format, with a limited number of Full Day seats. The Head Start program is free for both the 1/2 day and full day format. The Early Childhood Program is free for the 1/2 day format, and tuition based and/or state aid for the full day programs.
