Head Start Preschool Services

Head Start provides comprehensive early childhood education and support services in the areas of health and dental care, nutrition, special education, parent skill workshops, mental health, and social services. Children are provided with a nutritious breakfast, lunch, and snack each day.Through a comprehensive and integrated approach, Head Start enhances the positive development of children and creates a strong support network for families. Services include:

 
1. Education: Each Head Start classroom provides a safe and engaging preschool learning environment that supports a young child’s physical, cognitive, social and emotional growth and development.
