Head Start is a federally funded preschool program. There is no charge to eligible families: low-income families with children who are three (3) years old before August 31st. Classes are in session four (4) hours per day. five (5) days per week. Children are served breakfast and lunch as part of their day. Head Start implements the HighScope methodology of developmentally appropriate programming with an emphasis on cultural and individual backgrounds of the home and family. We work together -- parents, children, and staff -- to develop an individualized program/plan for each student. Students express their creativity and focus on opportunities for success. This is done by keeping in mind the special needs, characteristics, interests, and learning styles of these 3-5 year olds. Children are encouraged to plan-do-review each decision they make, thus developing their problem-solving skills, creativity, and excitement about learning.
