Our Focus on Family
Head Start isn’t just a daycare! Our program provides prompt care and support for all of our children and their families. We are highly responsive to parents and will do everything we can to assist those who need support. Head Start does not discriminate against children based on race, sex, color, national origin, religion, or disabling conditions.
If child has a diagnosed disability, provide the Individual Family Support Plan (IFSP) for Early Head Start or the Individual Education Plan (IEP) for Head Start.
