We strongly believe that parent, family,
and community engagement are essential elements to the child's
development and emotional well-being. We continue an ongoing focus on
the implementation of the Parent, Family & Community Engagement
(PFCE) Framework, which includes training for Family Advocates, teaching
and administrative staff.
Our Head Start program provides:
A nutritious breakfast, lunch and snack each school day
Developmental screening and assessments
Vision and hearing screening
Referrals for health, dental, and follow-up care
Support for children with special needs
Each parent is provided with a copy of the Parent Admission Agreement and asked to review and sign it. The agreement asks parents to make commitments, give permission for their child's participation, and acknowledge other rights and responsibilities as parents.
Parent engagement provides our program with strong ties essential to our communities, classrooms and families. To qualify for our services your child must be age eligible AND your family must either be income or categorically eligible.
