We take a comprehensive approach to serving and meeting the needs of low income children and families. Head Start consists of four major components:

  • Education: Providing a variety of learning experiences to help children grow intellectually, socially, and emotionally.
  • Health: Providing health services such as immunizations, dental, medical, and mental health, and nutritional services, and early identification of health problems.
  • Parent Involvement: Involving parents in the planning and implementation of activities. Parents serve on policy councils and committees that make administrative decisions; participate in classes and workshops on child development; and volunteer in the program.
  • Social Services: Provide outreach to families to determine what services they need.
